This is “Behind Apollo 11” by Norman Rockwell.

I can only identify the three Apollo 11 astronauts and their wives, Werner von Braun, Alan Shepard, a NASA administrator who I don’t know the name of, three cosmonauts who I don’t know the names of, and maybe Bob Gilruth?????? Is Chris Kraft in there also near the bottom?

Who are the rest and what are their names?

Here’s what I think for the row starting with the guy in the white cap: Joe Schmitt, Thomas Paine, Al, George Low, von Braun, Kurt Debus, and Guenter Wednt. Gilruth is above Janet Armstrong. 

My initial thought for the three in the snoopy caps were either Apollo 1 or 8, but those people are clearly not any of them. They almost look like Deke, Fred Haise, and Bill Anders. And then Chris. 

100% positive that’s actually Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Bill Anders. The Apollo 11 backup crew, duh ?

Yeah the one on the left is definitely Shaky. I’m awful with Apollo backups. Ok so Jim, Freddo, Bill, and Chris. Were the others added as extras or are they specific people?
