A strange new homemade film has surfaced made by former astronaut, Eugene Cernan, that reveals the real reason we did not go back to the moon and why the Russians have never really tried to send a man there.
The film, said to have been made by Cernan and which was not to be released until after he had died, was discovered accidentally by a grandchild who watched it in secret and then began showing it to his friends in the neighborhood.
Now copies have been made and may appear any day now on the internet and/or by photos from a national magazine.
The film allegedly shows the last man on the moon telling what he saw before entering the US lunar module on Apollo 17. He states that there were already tracks there on the moon's surface which the whole crew saw.
"They were very different than human prints and we took some photographs of them to take back with us. They were turned over to NASA headquarters and that's the last we heard of them."
Even stranger is what he says next on the old film:
"Those prints could have been there for many years. However, just as I climbed aboard I definitely saw movement out of the corner of my eye. When I turned, something or someone was just disappearing over a crater's edge."
Carnan stated that he didn't even report it because of the possibility of being ridiculed.
"I would have said more if NASA had revealed the footprint photos. But, since they never have up to this day in 1988, I don't think they will."
Is this a hoax? Is it another "Blair Witch Project"? No one will admit anything, including Cernan.
"The only thing we got from his wife, Jan, was that her husband had a lot of nightmares for years. That was some time ago", stated a source who has been after the story for more than thirty years.
