"Ronald Evans" nasa pathfinder stars (i4CQuest)

7-19 Dec. 1972 Apollo 17 was the last of the six Apollo missions to the Moon, and the only one to include a scientist—astronaut/geologist Harrison Schmitt—as a member of the crew. Schmitt and Eugene Cernan, had extended EVAs on the Moon, 22 hours, 4 minutes for each. Ronald Evans piloted the CM.
Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) ... In December of 1972, Apollo 17 astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt spent about 75 hours on the Moon, while colleague Ronald Evans orbited overhead. The crew returned with 110 kilograms of rock and soil samples, more than from any of the other lunar landing sites.

Template needs updating?[edit]

The template box indicates that it "needs updating." Given that astronaut Evans passed away in 1990, I find that unlikely to be true, but before I deleted that note I want to be sure I'm not missing something. Is there anything in the template that might be outdated or inaccurate? Newyorkbrad 03:07, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Miscellaneous Facts[edit]

I don't know if either are notable enough facts to be included in this (or any article), but it is interesting that both Evans and Neil Armstrong were members of VF-51 during their Navy careers (Armstrong during Korea and Evans during Vietnam) and that the ship that Evans flew from, the USS Ticonderoga, was the prime recovery vessel for Apollo 17. This may amount to trivia, which I believe is discouraged, so I'll leave inclusion or exclusion to wiser folks than I.209.244.31.35 (talk) 04:50, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Personally, I think that fact should be included in the page. Netweezurd (talk) 20:11, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

Needed Edits[edit]

I'm francophone so I'm not about to edit English but I can still figure that, under Military service, the phrase "Upon receiving aviator wings until 1962" needs attention.

Also, half of the post on this Talk page are quite... far fetched, I can't see how they pertain to the life of Ronald Evans. Some should be removed. Wikipedia is not Facebook, it is NOT a place to share stuff. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia.

 Done. I've never read this talk page, thanks. A little side banter is allowed, Thanks for the good catch here. Randy Kryn (talk) 20:15, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
