Years ago, about 23, I saw a SF book in a used bookstore. I would like to find that book again. On the cover was an astronaut looking at a skull/skeleton that was possibly in a space suit. I think the gist was that the astronaut was the first human on the moon so why was there a skeleton there? Does anyone know what that book was?

Thanks,
Mark

I'm sure there are several possibilities, but the first one that came to mind was The Trouble with Tycho by Clifford D. Simak.

Actually I think it's from James P. Hogan's Inherit the Stars

I thought of that one too, but couldn't remember the title.
