Birthdate[edit]

After searching his name at [1], there are several John W. Aaron born in the Texas/Oklahoma area around the the 1940s that could be him:

  • 1929-09-12- Oklahoma City, OK
  • 1942-09-07- Houston, TX
  • 1947-03-08- Houston, TX
  • 1947-03-08- Overland Park, Kansas
Any idea which one could be him? Cla68 23:40, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
The 1942 birthdate would be correct for the ages that I've seen mentioned (26 at the time of Apollo 11, 27 at the time of Apollo 13). But I wouldn't say that's definitive proof that it's him. MLilburne 01:50, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Also, from a little experimentation, I've found that the cities listed represent the person's current residence and not where they were born. MLilburne 01:55, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Given that this is a living person's biography, shouldn't we not give any birthdate if we have no strong evidence that it is his birthdate? Anyway, the article currently claims that he was born in 1946, meaning that he received his B.Sc. at age 18. --Nucleusboy (talk) 20:10, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
