A Family Portrait on the Moon

2013-02-15 1

Here’s another fun trivia about the lunar missions — no, a family photoshoot wasn’t actually done on the moon, no matter how cool that would be – one astronaut purposely left a photo print of his family on the moon’s surface.

On his third and final trip to the moon, Apollo 16 astronaut Charlie Duke left a small family photo on the lunar surface. Using the specialized Hasselblad camera that they had brought, he took some photos as a reminder.

The portrait – wrapped in a clear plastic bag — shows Duke with his wife Dorothy, and their two sons Charles and Thomas, and it has been there since 1972.
