OK, time for a pop quiz. Name as many people as you can that actually walked on the moon.

I bet Neil Armstrong's name popped right up. Then, after a second or two, Buzz Aldrin came to mind. But if you're stuck now, don't feel bad. I personally asked ten people before writing this story, and only one made it as far as four names.

So now, after all of this real life testing, here's my question: Imagine being one of the very few people in the history of the world that actually walked on the moon, and most people don't even know it.

As a matter of fact, most people don't even have a clue of how many people walked the lunar surface. do you know?

There were 12 all together. Here's the list of the elite dozen:
1) Neil Armstrong
2) Buzz Aldrin
3) Pete Conrad
4) Alan Bean
5) Alan Shepard
6) Edgar Mitchell
7) David Scott
8) James Irwin
9) John Young
10) Charles Duke
11) Eugene Cernan
12) Harrison Schmitt
