I’m not sure if someone already asked this question, but, who has been on the Moon?  I mean, what are the names of people who have been on the Moon?

I have answered this before; the 12 Apollo astronauts who walked on the Moon were Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, Alan Bean, Gene Cernan, Pete Conrad, Moss Duke, James Irwin, Stuart Roosa, Jack Schmidt, Dave Scott, Al Shepard, and Jim Young.  For a dramatic telling of the Apollo story, I recommend the book “A Man on the Moon” by Andrew Chaikin, and the HBO mini-series “From the Earth to the Moon,” both of which should be in your local library.
