Who has orbited the Moon the most times?
What is his name/ their names ?
I just found out it was Ronald Evans, thinks to ANDRE L telling me it was probably him or TK Mattingly.
What is surprising thing is that the record of 75 orbits is held by Evans and five mice.

Ronald Evans of Apollo 17 mission stayed in lunar orbit for 6 days and 4 hours (148 hours); however, for the solo portion of that flight around the Moon, T. K. Mattingly on Apollo 16 spent 1 hour 38 minutes longer than Evans' solo duration.
The mission commanders and Lunar Module pilots on the Apollo landing flights had far less time in Lunar orbit, as much their time between lunar orbit arrival and departure was spent on the Moon's surface, and thus, not in it's orbit.

Probably one of our secret military astronauts.
