Eugene Merle Shoemaker: There are many great scientists in the world who have always been remembered for their achievements. One such great scientist was Eugene Merle Shoemaker. He has trained many astronauts and established a new science. Born on April 28, 1928, Eugene was one of the great minds of the 20th century. For his outstanding contribution, he was awarded the National Medal of Science in 1992 by George H. W. Bush, then President of America.
Eugene Merle Shoemaker studied the Moon from a distance, living on Earth, but he often dreamed of boarding a spacecraft and walking on the lunar surface. However, he never got a chance to fulfill his dreams. A serious illness crushed his hopes of becoming an astronaut. But after his death in 1997, NASA managed to fulfill his dreams to some extent and the ashes of his bones were buried on the moon. He is the first and only person in the world to achieve this feat.
