Interesting factoid from NPR: Only one in five people living today were born when the first moon landing happened. I'm one of the elite; I was putting together a model of the LM while the LM landed on the moon.
I'm sure the figure for just the US would be much higher - that stat has more to do with population growth in southern countries than anything.
We can put a man on the moon, but we can't pay for education and health care! That has more to do with tax rates on the upper income brackets and corporations than with space exploration.
