Senator Schmitt, Unfinished Business - lunar exploration

Former U.S. Senator Harrison "Jack" Schmitt (R-NM) was the second to the last person to walk on the moon, and the only pure scientist, and certainly the only geologist Apollo veteran. Last month, he came to the Space Center IMAX theater and gave a compelling talk reasoning on the necessity of resuming direct lunar exploration. Fortunately, the presentation was recorded and uploaded to YouTube recently.
