Return to the Moon. Max Polyakov and Firefly Aerospace on NASA’s lunar program lists

50 years ago, on July 20, 1969, American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin landed on the Moon for the first time in human history. It was the 11th manned flight to the Earth’s natural satellite within NASA’s Apollo program, adopted by the USA government in 1961 and lasted 14 years.

17 missions were undertaken within the Apollo project during which the astronauts made 6 successful landings on the lunar surface. Apollo 13 failed, exploding when it was approaching to the satellite but the crew managed to save themselves and return to the Earth in the lunar module. The last Moon landing took place on 11 December 1972. In total, the Apollo expeditions delivered 382 kilograms of lunar soil samples to the Earth.
