When Apollo astronaut, Eugene Cernan, stepped off the moon in 1972, he left his footprints and his daughter's initials in the lunar dust. Only now, forty years later, he ready to share his epic but deeply personal story. Cernan's burning ambition carried him to the spectacular and hazardous environment of space and to the moon. However, there was a heavy price to pay for the fame and privilege that followed. As his wife famously remarked, 'If you think going to the moon is hard, try staying at home.' This documentary combines rare archive material, compelling visual effects, and unprecedented access to Cernan’s personal life to portray an iconic historical character on the big screen.

The exhibit will be open from April 30th, 2018 until August 18th, 2018 (General Admission $6).
