Datebook: December 11 - Last Moon Landing 40 Years Ago

Dec 11, 2012

It's been 40 years since we put someone on the moon. Apollo 17, the final Apollo mission, reached the moon on this day in 1972. For three days, astronauts collected lunar samples, drove around, investigated volcanic activity... and did a thousand one-arm push-ups without breaking a sweat.

It’s Tuesday, December 11
