NASA Administrator Bolden Remembers Gene Cernan

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden shared his thoughts on the life and legacy of Gemini and Apollo astronaut Gene Cernan, who passed away on Jan. 16 at the age of 82.

Cernan flew on three separate space missions. He was the second American to walk in space as the pilot on Gemini IX; ventured to the moon on Apollo 10, the pathfinder for the first lunar landing; and as commander of Apollo 17, Cernan holds the distinction of being the last person to leave his footprints on the surface of the moon.
