Funeral services will be held Tuesday for Eugene “Gene” Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon. Cernan passed away Jan. 16 at the age of 82.
NASA TV will broadcast the services live from St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston at 3:30 p.m. EST.
Cernan was a Naval captain who logged more than 5,000 hours of flying time with 4,800 of those logged in jet aircraft.
He was the last man to walk on the moon during 1972’s Apollo 17 mission, and he was one of three people to travel to the moon on two separate occasions, the others being Jim Lovell and John Young. He was only one of 12 people to walk on the moon.
