Whilst watching a Heath Ledger film (The Four Feathers), my wife and I were wondering what else we'd seen him in, so I searched the Internet Movie Database... Only to find that in the Australian soap Home and Away, he played a character called Scott Irwin. Surely this CANNOT be a coincidence?!

My wife went to college with a guy called Scott Worden. Needless to say, he loved the Apollo 15 patch...

I suppose that, in a world this big, these things are going to happen. That must mean that somewhere out there is Mr Conrad Bean!!

There could even be an Irwin Scott Worden, as those are first names too...

what other crews would work as names?

A couple of Geminis: Stafford Cernan, Conrad Cooper, Conrad Gordon (or Gordon Conrad), Stafford Schirra, Scott Armstrong... and the baby of the family, "Young Grissom"...

Wow!
That was a gift!

I was going to go for Laika Leonov, but I am outclassed.

Duke did you do this one as a setup to see who would take the bait. If so this is the best pun-like setup I have seen on collectspace. And John great catch ! It made my day.

As a sidelight (although not atronaut surnames) my generation has plenty of Moonbeams, Stars, Blazes etc. and I'm sure these would sound cool attached to astronaut surnames.

How about Star Bean, Moonbeam Armstrong, Blaze Collins (must have a copy of Carrying the Fire)

The name of the JSC FOIA coordinator is Stella Luna. I can't help but think that this helped her stand out in the interview at NASA !

I can see some of us doing google searches until the wee hours of the morning.

I have heard of a firm of lawyers in England called Irwin Mitchell.

But I prefer the Irish firm called (honestly!) Argue & Fibbs. (Straying off-topic but I couldn't resist it).

My mother's last name before she was married was Carpenter. No relation to the astronaut that I know of.
