NASA is reporting the death of Gene Cernan, the last human being to set foot on the moon… and the reason while Snoopy is still there. During his Apollo 17 mission, he and fellow astronaut Harrison Schmitt had the explorers’ prerogative to name the geographic features they discovered. And thus, there is a crater called Snoopy. Cernan also was involved in naming the Apollo

(I’ve talked to people in the space program, astronaut and otherwise, and given their views of things, I suspect that Cernan would’ve been glad to sacrifice his “last man” status, that he would rather that humans were still directly exploring that which lies beyond out atmosphere.)
