|This is a Magnavox Odyssey, released|
in 1972 and basically what Cernan and
his crew used to navigate to the Moon.

Since there are no planned return trips to the Moon, Cernan probably died with the bittersweet understanding that he may never be supplanted as the last human to set foot on it. I don't think I'm alone in finding this an incredibly sad thought, so I hope you'll join me tonight in gazing up at the sky, shaking a menacing fist at our largest natural satellite and shouting in a loud, clear voice so as to be sure to wake the neighbors: "You haven't heard the last of us, Moon! You hear me! We'll be baaaaaack!"
