The moon is going to have visitors after 20 years- AGAIN!

Remember the iconic line when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, ” One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”. That was the Apollo 11 moon landing mission in 1969 and it’s still ringing in our heads.

We humans haven’t left the earth orbit since the Apollo 17 mission in 1972 and the international space agency NASA hasn’t sent anymore into space since then.

 

But come October 2018, NASA’s Space Launch System and the Orion manned space capsule are scheduled to fly on a mission titled ” Exploration Mission-1″

The details of the mission? To put the capsule on the moon for 6 days and for about 3 weeks in space. NASA is currently in the process of figuring out the possibility of adding a manned crew to the mission.

 

History could be made again!
