70% of the Apollo astronauts are still alive. Pretty good numbers considering the latest birth year of an Apollo astronaut was 1936.

ETA: Note that those numbers are of those who flew beyond earth-orbit, Apollo astronauts such as "Gus" Grissom, Edward White, and Roger Chaffee, who were killed in the capsule fire, are not counted.
