Not really, but probably the closest thing to… well, I suppose there are people really in to the moon that might argue otherwise, but let’s not take away from the awesomeness that is the Dukes.

This story pops back into the public every so often, but it’s still not as well known as I always think it should be. Here’s the story:

When Charles Moss Duke was the lunar module pilot of Apollo 16 in 1972, he left this little memento behind… Sunday best and all. There’s really not a heck of a lot more to it, but it’s amazing to think that, being the gentle giant Luna is, this thing is still sitting exactly where it was left.

So cool! You can find a lot more detail at Gizmodo.
