Gene Cernan - The Last Man on the Moon

  • Friday, 27 May 2016 - 7:30PM

When Apollo astronaut Eugene Cernan stepped off the moon in 1972, he left his footprints and his daughter's initials in the lunar dust. Only now, forty years later, he is ready to share his epic but deeply personal story.

Cernan's burning ambition carried him to the spectacular and hazardous environment of space and to the moon. But there was a heavy price to pay for the fame and privilege that followed. As his wife famously remarked, 'If you think going to the moon is hard, try staying at home.'

'The Last Man on the Moon' film combines rare archive material, compelling visual effects and unprecedented access to present an iconic historical character on the big screen for the first time in Australia, followed by an 'In Conversation' and Audience Q&A live on stage with Gene Cernan, hosted by Dr. Lisa Harvey-Smith.
