Only 12 human beings have had the pleasure of walking on the surface of the Moon. The most famous were of course the two Apollo 11 astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, but they were succeeded by Alan Bean, Pete Conrad, Moss Duke, James Irwin, Stuart Roosa, Jack Schmidt, Dave Scott, Al Shepard, Jim Young, and the last one in 1972, Gene Cernan, as part of the Apollo 17 mission.
