What It Felt Like to Be the Last Man on the Moon

As Eugene Cernan stepped back into the Lunar Module and sealed the hatch, a profound sense of isolation washed over him. He was the last man on the moon, and he knew it would be many years before anyone else would follow in his footsteps. The lunar landscape stretched out before him, desolate and alien, and he couldn't help but feel a pang of sadness as he left it behind. He knew that this was a historic moment, and he was honored to be a part of it, but he also knew that it was the end of an era.
