During 20 years as a Naval Aviator, including 13 years with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Captain Eugene A. Cernan left his mark on history with three historic missions in space as the Pilot of Gemini IX, the Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo X, and the Commander of Apollo XVII. After flying to the moon not once, but twice, he also holds the distinction of being the second American to walk in space and the last man to have left his footprints on the lunar surface. Captain Cernan received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University in 1956 and a Master of Science degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the United States Naval Post Graduate School in 1963. His numerous honors include the Navy Distinguished Flying Cross, the Distinguished Service Medal with Star, the NASA Distinguished Service Medal, the FAI International Gold Medal for Space, the VFW Gold Space Award, the Daughters of the American Revolution Medal of Honor, induction into the U.S. Space Hall of Fame, the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame, the Texas Science Hall of Fame, a television Emmy, Olympic Torch Bearer in May, 1996, and in 2000 was enshrined into the National Aviation Hall of Fame and the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame.

In that final lunar landing mission, Cernan became "the last man on the moon" since he was the last to re-enter the Apollo Lunar Module during its third and final extra-vehicular activity (EVA).

Ronald Ellwin Evans, Commander USN Ron was born November 10, 1933 in St. Francis, Kansas. He was trained as an engineer at the University of Kansas and received a Master's Degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School in 1964. Ron was selected as a member of the fourth group of pilot-astronauts in April 1966. At the time of his selection, he was flying combat operations in the South China Sea - from the aircraft carrier USS Ticonderoga - having previously served as a combat flight instructor. He served on the support crew for Apollo 7 and as the Apollo 11 LM Launch CapCom before his assignment to the Apollo 14 backup crew and, then, Apollo 17. After his lunar flight, Ron served as backup Command Module Pilot for the 1975 Apollo-Soyuz joint flight and then transferred to the Shuttle program prior to his retirement from NASA in 1977. He worked as Executive Vice-President of Western America Energy Corporation in Scottsdale, Arizona until 1978, then as Manager, Space Systems Marketing for Sperry Flight Systems, Phoenix, Arizona, and later as a marketing consultant.

Extractions: Executive summary: Last man on the moon (Apollo 17) Military service: US Navy (Captain) A former Navy attack pilot and retired American astronaut and businessman, Gene Cernan holds the distinction of being the last human being to have walked the lunar surface (1972). Commander of Apollo 17, the last manned mission to the Moon, Cernan and geologist/lunar module pilot Jack Schmitt spent 75 hours on the lunar surface (including a record 22 hours and 6 minutes EVA) snapping photographs and collecting samples. Previously, aboard Gemini 9, Cernan had been the second American to walk in space, logging 2 hours and 10 minutes EVA. His subsequent Apollo 10 flight was considered the dress rehearsal for the later Apollo 11 mission (in which a lunar landing finally occurred). Cernan is also remembered for his assistance in the planning, development, and evaluation of the joint U.S./U.S.S.R. Apollo-Soyuz mission. Captain Cernan has logged 566 hours and 15 minutes in space. In 1976 Cernan retired from the Navy and NASA to work for Coral Petroleum. He later started his own consultation company, The Cernan Corporation. More recently he became Chairman of the Board for Johnson Engineering, the company which handles flight crew systems development for NASA's Johnson Space Center. He has been a frequent co-anchor of ABC-TV's Space Shuttle coverage.
SPACE.com -- Gene Cernan Takes A Look Back Astronaut gene cernan flew in space three times and was the last man to walk on the moon. He has some experiences he wants to share with the public and does http://www.space.com/news/cernan_book.html
Extractions: Eugene "Gene" Cernan has some experiences he wants to share with the public. One is what it felt like to be spacewalking outside the Gemini 9 spacecraft "with my visor fogged up and my suit sticking to me like plaster of Paris." Another is the strain that being an astronaut could put on a marriage. Cernan's book The Last Man on the Moon (St. Martin's Press) is "very first-person," he says in an interview with space.com. Rather than focus on technology, he sought to explain what it felt like to be a member of the space program in the 1960s and 70s. That includes the dark side of such a lifethe loneliness and worries of the astronauts' wives, for instance. The book, published in April 1999, was co-authored with journalist Don Davis over a period of two and a half years. In seeking a collaborator, Cernan says, "I needed someone willing to not just delve into my mind but to dive into my heart and soul." Cernan went into space three times. He served as commander of Apollo 17, the final manned moon mission, and participated in the Gemini 9 and Apollo 10 missions.
Extractions: Capt. Eugene Cernan On the future of spaceflight: Cernan said that it is vital to "inspire young people to reach out further than they thought they could reach before." "The inspiration of our young people is truly what the future is all about," he said. He said that the Apollo program was "the greatest human endeavor" in history, because people came together with the dedication and willpower to achieve something unlike anything that ever had been done. "We need to get back into that Saturn V world mentality," he said. On being the last man on the Moon: "It's a little disappointing and a dubious honor to be the last man to walk on the Moon." Cernan said he believes, however, that the next generation will "take us back out there where we belong." "Apollo 17 is what I called the end of the beginning, and the beginning is somewhat delayed right now," he said. On how things have changed since Apollo 17: "I keep telling people today under the dashboard of your car is more technology than we had in the Apollo spacecraft."

Extractions: Eagle Lander 3D Home First of all I was extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to demonstrate Eagle Lander 3D (EL3D) for Gene Cernan. A veteran astronaut of Gemini IX and Apollo 10, Gene Cernan was the last man on the moon and commander of Apollo 17. I had the honor and privilege of meeting Gene while on a family vacation (of course I had my trusty Alienware laptop and EL3D which always travel with me!) For those unfamiliar with the history and exploits of Gene Cernan, I heartily recommend his autobiography The Last Man on the Moon . In addition to being a fascinating narrative of a famous space pioneer, the book holds great insight about the inner workings of the NASA manned space program during its most innovative and aggressive period. I stood on the shoulders of giants. Since releasing the first version of EL3D back in 2002, I have held hope for a real Apollo astronaut to fly it. To have had Gene Cernan be the first Apollo astronaut to fly EL3D was a true honor. Gene is widely known as one of the most approachable of the Apollo astronauts, and 32 years after his last spaceflight is still filled with unbridled enthusiasm for his experiences. We talked a little about the magnitude of the achievement and how he felt to be one of just twelve men to walk on the face of another world. He remembered looking back at the earth from 250,000 miles away knowing that the will of a nation and 400,000 people had put him there. He summarized by saying, I stood on the shoulders of giants.
Extractions: Each inductee unveiled a new portait of themselves which will hang in the Hall of Fame, and I thought Cernan's was particularly well-done. I agree; great portrait! Can I place my order now? However, I wanted to point out what I beleive to be a bit of artistic license. As discussed in a recent thread I believe the earth should be higher in the lunar sky, although I understand the reason for painting it lower. No criticism intended; just an observation.

He was also a backup crew member for the Gemini 12, Apollo 7 and Apollo 14 missions. While on the moon on Apollo 17 he and his crewmate Harrison Schmitt performed three EVAs for a total of about 22 hours of exploration. Their first EVA alone was over three times the length Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent outside the LM on Apollo 11. During this time they covered over 35 kilometers in the Lunar Rover and spent a great deal of time collecting geologic samples that would shed light on the moon's early history.
