Do all astrounuats die before returning to earth?

No. Only a few astronauts have died in the line of duty, and very few (and no Americans) have died in space. The most dangerous part of any space journey is the launch and the landing. Three American astronauts were killed in a fire in the capsule on the launch pad during testing before Apollo 1. Seven astronauts were killed when space shuttle Challenger was destroyed during launch, and seven astronauts were killed when the shuttle Columbia disintegrated over Texas during re-entry. At least a few astronauts were killed in aircraft accidents. We believe that the Russians lost a couple of astronauts in space, but this has never been admitted. Several Russian astronauts have died during re-entry or during the landing.

Are there any astronauts with a first name of James?

Yes. The most famous would be James Lovell. He was on the crew of Apollo 8, the first one to travel to the moon, although they did not land on it. They orbited the moon only. He was also on the famous Apollo 13 mission, that failed to land on the moon due to technical problems. There was also James A. McDivitt, commander of Gemini 4 and Apollo 9, and James B. Irwin, LM pilot of Apollo 15.
