Question: Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon. Who was the last?

Answer: Captain Eugene Cernan holds the distinction of being the last human to leave his footprints on the moon. Cernan’s achievement means that Purdue University currently holds the distinction of being the alma mater of both the first person to walk on the Moon (Neil Armstrong), and the last. The final words Cernan spoke on the Moon in December 1972 represented everything the Apollo missions stood for. “We leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace, and hope for all mankind.” Cernan traced his only child’s initials in the dust before climbing the ladder of the lunar module the last time. He died on Jan. 16, 2017, in Texas.
