Harrison Schmitt Signed Autographed 'return To The Moon' Hc, 1st Ed, Apollo 17

You are offerding on a FIRST EDITION, second printing hardcover edition of Return to the Moon,SIGNEDby Apollo 17 astronaut andmoonwalker Dr.Harrison H. 'Jack' Schmitt - the last man to set foot on the Moon, later elected as United States Senator from New Mexico. (The First Edition, Second Printing is actually the more valuable editionas it corrects several mistakes in the first printing).

Senator Schmitt personally signed this First Editon at Novspace Galleries on November 18, 2006 and the Certificate of Authenticity is included.

Book and dustjacket arein near-mint condition, never read and opened only to scan the signature.

Astronaut Harrison Schmitt advocates a private, investor-based approach to returning humans to the Moon—to extract Helium 3 for energy production, to use the Moon as a platform for science and manufacturing, and to establish permanent human colonies there in a kind of stepping stone community on the way to deeper space. With governments playing a supporting role—just as they have in the development of modern commercial aeronautics and agricultural production—Schmitt believes that a fundamentally private enterprise is the only type of organization capable of sustaining such an effort and, eventually, even making it pay off.

Harrison Schmitt is, as of this date, the 12th and last human to have stepped on the Moon. As an astronaut, pilot, geologist, academic, businessman, and United States Senator, he has had a distinguished career in science and technology practice and policy. Schmitt was the first scientist to go into space specifically to explore the Moon as the Lunar Module Pilot and field geologist on the last Lunar Mission, Apollo 17. He is active in private and government sponsored research into a return to the Moon, and in fusion technologies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he is Adjunct Professor of Engineering. In his role as a Senator (R-NM, 1977-1983) he was chairman of the Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Science, Technology, and Space.
