Clark Planetarium is inviting the public to celebrate Apollo 17 Saturday
SALT LAKE CITY — Clark Planetarium is celebrating the 50-year anniversary of Apollo 17 on Dec. 10.
Apollo 17 was the last mission which a human set foot on the moon and retrieved rock samples, and left a mark on the moon with a plaque.
Gene Cernan, the last astronaut on the moon, said “the entire world was on board that spacecraft with us.”
