Artwork Description

Apollo 17’s Jack Schmitt takes a moment to let the significance of his lunar exploration sink in. He knows this spot hasn’t changed much over the last three billion years. Now there are signs of visitors from another place: footprints, part of a spaceship, an abandoned car, a flag. Jack contemplates how these traces will remain just as they are for at least the next three billion years or so.
