NASA Television provided live coverage of the Jan. 24 funeral service at Houston’s St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, celebrating the life and legacy of NASA astronaut and U.S. Navy Capt. Eugene A. Cernan. The former Gemini and Apollo astronaut died Jan. 16 at the age of 82.
Cernan left his mark on the history of exploration by flying three times in space, twice to the moon. He also holds the distinction of being the second American to walk in space and the last human to leave his footprints on the lunar surface.
