in 1972 Gene Cernan made the last footprints on the Moon of the Apollo Program and as the LM Challenger ascended from Taurus Littrow afterward, closed a major chapter in the history of space exploration.

Astronauts Cernan and Schmitt remained on the lunar surface for 75 hours and performed 3 Moon walks totaling ~22 hours. Thanks to the electric powered Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV), they also traveled ~22mi (35km), venturing as far as 4.6mi (7.4km) from the LM.

You'll want to have your sound up ⬆️ for this video! See the moment the test version of the liquid hydrogen tank ruptured as it experienced more than 260% of expected flight loads, then learn more about the test HERE >>

I suppose more succinctly this will be the first American crewed launch site outside of LC-39A and B since 1968.

Gotta say, I detest the pedantry that some people in the space community, particularly some on the enthusiast side, use to bludgeon and gatekeep others.

in 1972 the Apollo 17 LM Challenger successfully landed in valley of Taurus Littrow, marking the final lunar landing of the Apollo Program. Shortly thereafter, CDR Gene Cernan and LMP Jack Schmitt became the last astronauts of the program to set foot on the Moon.

Worth noting that CST-100's inaugural OFT-1 mission out of SLC-41 will be the first launch of a spacecraft designed for crew from CCAFS since Apollo 7 launched from LC-34 in 1968!

Nice! I've been on the regular tour and also the VAB tour back right after STS retired, but I've never been on the CCAFS one.
