The Top Ten

1 Neil Armstrong Neil Alden Armstrong was an American astronaut and aeronautical engineer who was the first person to walk on the Moon. He was also a naval aviator, test pilot, and university professor.

Always remember our hero Neil in these trying times. Mankind can do great things like this if we make the attempt

Neil Armstrong is one of my favorite people of all time. Apollo 11 is very inspiring.

Well yeah he was the first creature ever to step on the moon

He had the Right Stuff!

The best astronaut to never have walked on the moon. Held the record for longest time in space (pre-space station era). Was the first person to fly to the moon twice. 2 Gemini missions (Gemini XII lasted 14 days) and 2 Apollo missions. Also considered the "most liked" among the New Nine

Killed in a fire with two other astronauts. Poor guy died too early.

13 Kalpana Chawla

Best Indian astronaut. Forfeited her life for the cause of science.

14 John Young

Flew Gemini twice, walked on the moon in Apollo, first to fly space shuttle, flew sky lab...the man is the astronauts astronaut. All business and straight up talent/skill.

Gemini, Apollo, and the Space Shuttle. John Young is #1 in my book. Spent over 15 years as an astronaut and a lifetime devoted to space exploration. One of 12 men to have walked on the moon. Commanded STS-1 and proved the Space Shuttle was a flyable vehicle. Godspeed, John Young

First commander of the Space Shuttle Program and a moonwalker but you probably MIGHT know him as the guy who sneaked a sandwich into space

Best writer and I would argue by far the funniest out of all the Astronauts. A true intellectual who wrote the book on astronaut autobiographies - Carrying The Fire.

Last man on the moon
