Ray Bradbury, author of the novel The Martian Chronicles, longtime Los Angeles resident and graduate of Los Angeles High School, has a place on the moon named in his honor. In 1971, the Apollo 15 astronauts gave the name Dandelion Crater to a moon feature, borrowing the name, they said, from Bradbury’s 1957 novel, Dandelion Wine.
