Caption: Apollo 17 astronaut handling objects on the Moon. Footage of US astronaut and geologist Dr Harrison Schmitt on the surface of the Moon, handling objects while exploring the Taurus-Littrow region as part of NASA's Apollo 17 mission. The gravity on the Moon is a sixth of that on Earth, resulting in a bouncy motion when walking on the Moon, together with stumbling and falling. Schmitt landed on the Moon on 11 December 1972, with mission commander Eugene Cernan. They spent 75 hours on the surface. Ron Evans remained in orbit in the command module. Dr Schmitt is the only scientist to have landed on the Moon. Apollo 17 was the last Apollo mission, and Schmitt and Cernan are the last people to have walked on the Moon. A total of 12 US astronauts walked on the Moon during the eleven manned Apollo missions, from 1968-1972.
