Apollo 16 Astronaut Leaves Family Photo on Moon

One small snap for man

Man in the moon ... picture on lunar surface

 

THE youngest astronaut to walk on the moon secretly left behind a family snap — with a note written on the back for ALIENS. 

 

Spaceman Charles Duke placed the photo of himself, wife Dottie and sons Tom and Charles in a plastic folder then discreetly dropped it.

Just in case it was found by aliens, the Apollo 16 pilot wrote on the back: “This is the family of Astronaut Duke from Planet Earth. Landed on the Moon, April 1972.”
