Jim Bridenstein, chief administrator of the US space agency NASA, made the official announcement on Monday (September 21). In 1969, the first footprints of civilization fell on the moon. Three American astronauts walked.
According to reports, after taking a step or two, Neil Armstrong was heard to say from the ground, “That’s a small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind. This small step of a man is a great leap for the whole of human civilization.”
7 consecutive days on the moon:
Bridenstein said Monday that 55 years ago, Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin walked for a very short time, but this time the two astronauts will be walking on the moon for seven days in a row, picking up pebbles and doing various kinds of research. And within a decade, urgent preliminary research and preparation for the human footprint on the red planet Mars will begin from this time on the lunar surface. Then the two astronauts will return to the earth by pressing the spacecraft.
NASA has not yet announced which two astronauts have been selected to enter the moon. Only the first phase of their upcoming lunar mission ‘Artemis Mission’ has been revealed.
It took Armstrong three days to reach the moon from Earth. Technology has advanced a lot. So this time you can touch the ground of the moon in two and a half days.
