Moon Watching from the Knolls
20 April 2007

Have you seen the beautiful moon views from your deck recently? If so, prepare for some discussions of a native son's historical contributions to the world and his hopes for more moon connections for us in the future.

Harrison "Jack" Schmitt, who was born in Santa Rosa, NM, was a member of the Apollo 17 Moon Flight in December 1972. He has been a resident of Albuquerque since 1982. At the present time he is a a part of the NASA Advisory Council which has plans to return to the moon before 2020.

Schmitt, a former U. S. Senator from NM, knows the pitfalls of government, but hopes that there will be a commercial incentive to explore the moon once again. Helium-3 is not found in great quantities on the earth, but it is abundant on the moon. It is within the realm of the possible to use this moon resource to economically power the earth.

Add to your Knolls News Knowledge after you read Schmitt's book, Return to the Moon.
