Purpose and Publisher

     The purpose of my website is to show you about an important astronaut that not alot of people know about.  His name was Ceran Eugene Andrew, the last astronaut to step on the moon.

     My name is Aiden Karga, I'm a 6th grader going to middle school at Holman.  This is my first year and I'm in my second quarter.

Description Paragraph- Ceran's Life

    An American astronaut, Eugene Andrew Ceran was born in 1934. He was the lead commander of the space shuttle, Apollo 17. His last flight with Ronald Evans and Harrison Schmitt took place on Dec 7-19, 1972.  He later was remembered as the last man to step foot on the moon.

Cause and Effect- Accomplishments From The Long Voyage

     Cernan stayed a total of 22 hours on the moon using the Lunar Rover which was three times the time of Neil Armstrong's voyage.  During that time he collected geologic samples that would shed light on the Moon's history.  After the expedition he was remembered as the last astronaut to step foot on the moon.
