  1. Gene Cernan was the LM (lunar module) pilot on this landing test mission, and came within seven miles of landing on the moon. The mission managers made sure that there wasn’t enough fuel in the LM to actually land and take off, so Cernan couldn’t actually land on the moon.

    Before anyone feels sorry for poor Gene, he did land the Apollo 16 LM on the moon and get to explore the ancient cinder cones on the satellite. He was the last person to walk on the moon…

    …so far…
