First women is space.
The one who said Godspeed John Glenn
First American in space
Come on he should be number 1! he was the first american and second person in space!,and he sacrificed his life to go into space and even when the us space program wasn't doing well! plus he went to the moon sooo yeah.
Killed in a fire with two other astronauts. Poor guy died too early.
Best Indian astronaut. Forfeited her life for the cause of science.
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
Commander of Apollo 13. Also flew on Gemini 7 and 12 and Apollo 8
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
First american woman in space.
Great astronaut, great guy, first person to fly in missions Mercury-Apollo.
The first female Persian astronaut!
If I could be on any Apollo flight I would choose Apollo 12 just because the guys are probably really nice to hang out with! Shame they are all dead though. Pete's quote "There it is! Son of a gun right down the middle of the road! " really just says it all!
One of the men on the infamous Apollo 13 mission. He is still alive today! I believe he makes lot of public appearances too so you can meet this man in person if you try hard enough!
He could have been a legend if it wasnt for his tragic death.
Sadly killed in the Challenger disaster. She would have been first teacher in space
Last man on the moon
Has the coolest name of any astronaut in history. YOU HAVE TO AGREE!
