The Apollo program included a large number of uncrewed test missions and 12 crewed missions: three Earth orbiting missions (Apollo 7, 9 and Apollo-Soyuz), two lunar orbiting missions (Apollo 8 and 10), a lunar swingby (Apollo 13), and six Moon landing missions (Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17). Two astronauts from each of these six missions walked on the Moon (Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin, Charles Conrad, Alan Bean, Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, David Scott, James Irwin, John Young, Charles Duke, Gene Cernan, and Harrison Schmitt), the only humans to have set foot on another solar system body. Total funding for the Apollo program was approximately $20,443,600,000.

A Slide set showing the six landing sites and diagram is available from NASA. This slide set portrays the six landing sites at a variety of scales, ranging from Earth-based telescopic views spanning hundreds of kilometers to high-resolution photographs obtained from lunar orbit which were used as an aid to evaluating the geologic setting of each site. The unmanned Soviet Luna landing sites are also dipicted. A schematic map of the lunar nearside with latitude, longitude and showing Apollo and Luna landings sites, mare basalt areas, and large basins is also provided.
