"We’ve been looking up at the Moon for millennia, but it was always just out of reach. People made up stories about it, associating it with deities or talking of the Man in the Moon who watches over all, while others wondered what it would look like up close. Then everything changed.
On 20 July 1969, man achieved what had previously been thought impossible: two astronauts landed on the surface of the Moon for the first ever time. More Moon landings followed in a era since dubbed the golden age of space exploration, but our curiosity is far from sated.
