None. The Space Shuttle could barely make it into space to low-Earth orbit, and could never have gone to the Moon. And since the Shuttle lands using its wings and glides in to a landing, it could never have landed on the Moon even if it could have gotten there. There's no air on the Moon, so wings don't work.

The only manned spacecraft to land on the Moon were six "Lunar Excursion Modules", or LEMs. Of those enormous Saturn V rockets, only a tiny sliver made it to the Moon - and only half of the LEM _left_ the Moon, to be abandoned once the crew was reunited in the Command Module.
