Inside the Lunar lander.

The Lunar Module was the first manned spacecraft specifically built to deliver men to the Moon.

This two-stage spacecraft was built by the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation to ferry two astronauts and scientific equipment to the surface of the Moon. The 6.7-metre (22-foot) tall craft had an aluminium frame with titanium fittings and was covered with layers of aluminised Kapton and aluminised Mylar to provide thermal protection against micrometeoroids.

The Apollo Command Module carried it into lunar orbit, and two of the three crew transferred to it and used the descent engine to land on the Moon. After deploying scientific

Creating a permanent Moon base.

Technology and innovation continue apace and the idea of manned lunar base is far from dead

On average, the Moon is 384,400 kilometres (239,000 miles) away from us, and is a mere hop away compared to the rest of the major objects in our Solar System. Yet, even after landing on its surface in 1969 the dream of establishing a permanent base there has so far eluded us.

The idea of a permanent base was proposed during the Cold War, when the US Army Ballistic Missile Agency envisaged creating a 12-man military outpost that would be protected by missiles and

In Australia lunar mineral found

Australia has found a lunar mineral Facts

In the west of Australia in rocks billions of years old earth scientists found similar trankilliteita, lunar mineral consisting of iron, zirconium, yttrium, titanium, silicon and oxygen. The mineral was named after the Sea of Tranquility (Mare Tranquillitatis) on the moon, where he first saw the Apollo 11 mission in 1970. Earlier trankilliteita found only in samples from the moon or lunar meteorites.

The used equipment on the Moon revived humanoids?

How to find a competent circles NASA (about atom repeatedly reported the U.S. media), «all the flights of American spacecraft controlled from afar and near the aliens (or their auto ship.) However, land bases ordered the astronauts to store this information in secret.» According to unofficial data, a similar pattern was observed and the former Soviet Union, where virtually every spacecraft launch from Baikonur, Plesetsk and Kapustin Yar is not controlled by an identified flying objects. Most of the famous UFO photographs were taken from the surface of the Earth. However,
