How many people are buried on the moon? One.
On July 31, 1999 the NASA Lunar Prospector Probe was intentionally crashed into the moon’s south pole at the end of its mission with hopes of creating plumes of water ice. No ice plumes were created. Lunar Prospector did have a second mission in crashing that was successful: depositing the ashes of astronomer Eugene Shoemaker on the moon. While other people have been buried in space, Shoemaker remains the only human buried on the moon.
