Jack Schmitt: From Apollo 17 to LRO

December 11, 2022 will mark the 50th anniversary of the day NASA's Apollo 17 mission landed on the Moon. This video connects that history to the current Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission through the eyes of astronaut Harrison Jack Schmitt. As a geologist and Apollo 17 crewmember, Schmitt has a unique perspective about how data being collected by LRO enhances our current understanding of lunar science and lays the groundwork for future explorers.
