Some say the Apollo astronauts were lucky to be at the right place at the right time. But it still required guts and courage to go on a journey where there was a chance they might never make it back. True pioneers.
I understand there were 24 men in all who walked on the moon. The youngest surviving is now aged 76, I believe. I hope the world doesn't go back to a period of existence where there are no men alive who have walked on the moon. I reckon it'll take China making efforts to put a man on the Moon or Mars to kick off the next big space race with the USA.
