13 out of 15. Couldn't remember Nedelin, and said N-5 instead of N-1.

Here is an episode of celebrity Mastermind from 2010, which had questions on the Apollo program (forward to one minute).

Although I think the questions on Celebrity Mastermind can be slightly easier than normal Mastermind.

On the UK TV quiz show Breakaway aired on BBC2 20 March 2012 Question 27 was:
How many astronauts have walked on the moon?
None of four middle-aged British adults (a science/maths lecturer, a business development manager, a marketing consultant, and a medical rep) knew the correct answer. The science/maths lecturer actually pondered if it was 7 or 9. Eventually the two active contestants, the maths/science lecturer and the business development manager totally guessed at 7.

Dear, oh dear...

I was watching my DVDs of old classic commercials and saw a segment of that old TV game show called "What's My Line." It had Neil Armstrong's parents on there and the question to them was "What if your son was the first man to walk on the moon?"

I found that fascinating to say the least. I found that also on YouTube:

I managed to answer 8 correctly, not bad considering I haven't "swotted" on Gemini for some time.

On the UK TV quiz show Pointless aired on BBC1 17 April 2013, one of the final round category options was Astronauts.

The two middle-aged contestants dismissed questions on Astronauts because:

"It was a long time ago." "Geeky"
They went on to win answering about 2012 Ryder Cup Golfers.

They made it sound like Astronauts were obscure ancient history!

On the Sept. 25 episode of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," the $250,000 question was:
In 1961, delays on the Freedom 7 launch combined with lots of orange juice made what astronaut the first to wet his space suit?
  1. Alan Shepard
  2. Neil Armstrong
  3. John Glenn
  4. Buzz Aldrin
The contestant didn't know the answer and jumped the question! Wish I'd been there instead!

The way the question is phrased implies there were others. If so, who?
