Harrison Schmitt, the last man on the moon, has hailed the 'significance' of Apollo 11 which he claims brought both a literal and psychological 'freedom' to the people of America.

The retired U.S astronaut was one of the hundreds of thousands in the US space programme who answered the call of President John F Kennedy and landed Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon in July 1969.
