The last men on the Moon - picture of the day

Jack Schmitt’s photograph was taken on a specially developed Hasselblad camera with a 70mm back, using a 60mm lens. The SO-368 Kodak Ektachrome film that was used in space was tougher and more reliable under difficult light conditions than the transparency film used on earth; it’s thinness allowed them to shoot hundreds of frames without changing the magazine. The Apollo 17 crew were the last people to set foot on the moon and returned to Earth 40 years ago today.
