Supporting Amateur Radio Emergency Communications

 

On this date in history… On November 19, 1969, Apollo 12 Astronauts Pete Conrad and Alan Bean became the third and fourth humans to walk on the moon.

 

QUESTION:

In total, how many people have walked on the moon?

 

ANSWER:

12

EXPLANATION:

Ask someone if they know the names of the astronauts who have walked on the Moon, and most people would be able to list Neil Armstrong, and maybe even Buzz Aldrin. But can you name the rest of the Apollo astronauts who made it down to the lunar surface?

In total twelve people have walked on the Moon. Besides Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin – who were the first two astronauts to leave their boot prints on the Moon — there were also Pete Conrad, Alan Bean, Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, David Scott, James Irwin, John Young, Charles Duke, Eugene Cernan, and Harrison Schmitt.

Interestingly, out of the dozen people who walked on the Moon, no one ever did it more than once.

NET CHECK IN’s:

Tonight we had 32 people check into the Net and a whole bunch of those had the correct answer to tonight’s Trivia Question.

Thanks to all the folks who took the time to support us by checking into the Net.

Thanks to Gary (W6NVY) for use of the repeater.
