It was the dawn of an age when many thought it was too early to expect a return to life on Earth.
The moon landed in the early 1980s, when astronauts took off and landed on the surface of the planet, and it took until 2004 for a second attempt.
Then came the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, which is thought to have landed in December 2013.
In August 2015, the moon passed within 4.5 million kilometres (2.4 million miles) of Earth, and then it passed the Earth again, this time in December.
And then there was the announcement last month that Nasa’s Moon Express mission has succeeded in making the first landing on the moon.
This, the first in a series of missions to return astronauts back to Earth from the moon, will be completed in 2021.
It is a milestone that could be remembered as an epochal moment for humankind, and the first step towards the ultimate goal of a fully manned human mission to the moon.
“I think the Moon Express team did a great job, and I would like to thank them for all their hard work,” said Moon Express co-founder and CEO, Jim Green.
It was a great moment, but we have to keep moving forward,” Green said.
The mission to return a crew from the surface to the lunar surface, known as the Lunar Prospector, will take about three months, and will be carried out by Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.”
We are very excited about what we have accomplished,” said mission manager Steve Johnson.”
It’s not going to be the only moon mission in the next few years, but it’s the first mission of the 2020s, so it is a great step forward in the space race.
“It is hoped that Nasa will soon launch a manned mission to another part of the moon known as Encelle.
But while the Moon has not been returned to Earth, it is still an important part of human history.
There are many myths and legends associated with the Moon, which were created to help explain our world.”
What are the myths about the Moon?” asked Moon Express chief operating officer Steve Johnson, adding that there were many myths around the Moon.”
People were telling the story of the astronauts landing on Encelia, but nobody believed it.
We found that people really didn’t believe in the story.
“There are also some myths around lunar landings, like the legend that an astronaut fell from the lunar module, which was made from a metal bar.
But the real story is that Encele is not a mountain but a flat plain, and that the landers actually landed on a beach, where they were met by locals and greeted by local fisherman.”
You can see it’s a very remote place, with a lot of erosion, which we know is a natural phenomenon, and you can hear a lot about the people and the people’s way of life,” said Johnson.
As well as the history of the Moon from the early days, Johnson said there are still myths about Earth’s surface that are still widely believed.”
I think that is a good thing, because the Earth is full of myths and stories that are really important to the Earth,” he said.”
There are a lot that we’re learning about the Earth and the Moon and the history and the cultures and the mythology, but there are some myths that we’ve yet to learn about.””
There’s a lot we don’t know about the environment, we’re not really seeing much of the world that we should, and there’s a lack of knowledge about the human condition,” he added.”
And so, I think that’s the beauty of the science and the technology.
“If you want to have a meaningful conversation about the future, you need the knowledge, the stories, the myths.”
