[[NASA]] assigned 32 American [[astronaut]]s to the [[Apollo program|Apollo lunar landing program]], and 24, flying on nine missions between December 1968 and December 1972, orbited the [[Moon]]. During six two-man landing missions twelve astronauts walked on the lunar surface, and six of those drove [[Lunar Roving Vehicle]]s. Three flew to the Moon twice, one orbiting both times and two landing once apiece. Apart from these 24 men, no human being has gone beyond [[low Earth orbit]].
 
The Apollo program included three other mannedcrewed missions. [[Apollo 1]] did not launch and its crew died in a ground-based capsule fire, and [[Apollo 7]] and [[Apollo 9]] were [[low Earth orbit]] missions testing spacecraft components and docking maneuvers. Nine astronauts later flew unused [[Apollo command module]]s in the [[Apollo Applications Program]]'s [[Skylab]] and [[Apollo–Soyuz Test Project]].
 
Of the 24 astronauts who flew to the Moon, two went on to command a Skylab mission, one commanded Apollo–Soyuz, one flew as commander for [[Approach and Landing Tests]] of the [[Space Shuttle]], and two commanded orbital Space Shuttle missions.
