Only one country has landed people on the Moon- the USA. We went there from July 20, 1969 to Dec.11-14, 1972. There were six separate missions-Apollo 11,12, 14, 15, 16, and 17. Only twelve men have ever set foot on the Moon. They are-

Neil Armstrong
Buzz Aldrin

Pete Conrad
Alan Bean

Alan Shepard
Ed Mitchell

David Scott
James Irwin

John W. Young
Charles Duke

Eugene Cernan
Harris Schmitt

Only four nations have landed unmanned probes on the Moon- The US, the Russians, the European Union... India accomplished the task on Friday. China has a probe in lunar orbit(the Chang)...The Moon is the next Klondike.
One day, we will look up and see on the Moons surface a giant flashing neon-like sign saying "Eat at Joe's."
