Harrison H Schmitt

One inescapable reality faced by those who walked on the Moon during the Apollo programme was the comprehension that, as relatively young men, they had already carried out what would be the pinnacle achievement of their lives. They were there at the culmination of humankind's greatest-ever scientific accomplishment, so in that respect they were in the right place at the right time, and in possession of the right qualifications. However, none of them could count on doing anything to eclipse those historic hours they spent traversing the lunar surface. In some well-documented cases, it would prove to be a difficult and frequently dominating obfuscation, but for Harrison Schmitt, going to the Moon would provide the key to many new challenges and experiences, which continue to this day. He could easily, and correctly, refer to himself as the last man to step on the Moon; yet it is a mantle he seems to shun, preferring instead to be known as a trained geologist (and later, pilot) who happened to be in the right place at the right time.
