You might be interested in a book called Moondust. The author realized in the early 2000s that at some point soon all of the astronauts who walked on the moon would be gone. He set out to interview each of them about their experiences at the time, and since visiting the moon.

It's a mix of space history and personal reflections on the perspective they got, that none of us will likely have.


A Man on the Moon by Andrew Chaikin (1998)[0] is also a great read. The author explains in the forward that that was also part of his motivation to write the book. I have the 23 hour audiobook, which is also quite well narrated.
