The Kid Should See This

NASA footage from the moon: “I was strolling on the Moon one day”

Watch more with these video collections:

In December 1972, Astronaut Harrison Schmitt sang “I was strolling on the Moon one day” while he strolled and skipped (and fell) on the moon with Commander Gene Cernan during the Apollo 17 mission. Schmitt was a geologist, an astronaut, a university professor, a former U.S. Senator from New Mexico, and the only scientist to have explored the Moon’s surface.

Very interesting side note: Commander Cernan has the honor of being the last man on the moon. Lucky fellas.
