On Dec. 14, 1972, Apollo 17 Cmdr. Eugene Cernan climbed from the moon's dusty surface up the rungs of the Lunar Module ladder, entered his spacecraft and began the journey back to Earth.    Almost 40 years later, he still finds it strange to have been the last man on the moon.

NASAs Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter captured a dramatic sunrise view of Tycho crater. Tycho craters central peak complex, shown here, is about 9.3 miles (15 km) wide, left to right (southeast to northwest in this view). Tycho is one of the most prominent craters on the moon. It appears as a bright spot in the southern highlands with rays of bright material that stretch across much of the nearside.
