The Family Photo Left on the Surface of the Moon

Stashed in: Moon!, Space!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

On April 23, 1972, Apollo 16 astronaut Charlie Duke took his third and final jaunt on the moon. He and fellow astronaut John Young took the Lunar Rover exploring in the Descartes Highlands, and while they were there, Duke left a token on the surface of the Moon — a portrait of his family.

I wonder if someday someone will find it.
