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 was also known to study terrestrial craters (pits) such as the Barringer Meteor Crater (crater made of meteorite bodies) in Arizona. In addition, he was also the first director of the United States Geological Survey's Astrophysical Research Program. His first mission was to discover uranium reserves in Utah and Colorado. His next mission thereafter was to study volcanic processes, as other investigators had already noted that uranium was often deposited in the core of ancient volcanoes.
Eugene Merle Shoemaker had also helped other scientists to find out where on earth doom came about six and a half million years ago. In fact, at that time, a meteorite spanning about 12 kilometers had hit the earth, destroying 80 percent of the creatures living on the earth, not just the dinosaurs. This place is the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.
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.
