Cernan 'disappointed' by Obama Moon plans


The last man on the Moon, Eugene Cernan, has said he is disappointed at President Barack Obama's decision to push back further Moon missions.

Last month Mr Obama cancelled Nasa's Constellation Moon landings programme, approved by ex-President George W Bush.

Nasa still aims to send astronauts back to the Moon, but it is likely to take decades and some believe that it will never happen again.
