On Apollo 17, Cernan became the eleventh person to walk on the Moon and the most recent man to walk on the Moon, since he was the last to re-enter the Lunar Module Challenger after the mission's third and final extravehicular activity.

Cernan was also a backup crew member for the Gemini 12, Apollo 7 and Apollo 14 space missions.
