Our Moon

Earth’s moon is the most familiar and also the largest satellite in relation to its planet in the entire solar system. It is the first body in the solar system on which vehicles from earth landed, and the only one to be explored by humans.

** The only human that remained on the moon was geologist Eugene Shoemaker who was an expert on planetary collision. His ashes were carried aboard NASA’s lunar prospector spacecraft, which was crashed into a crater on 31 July 1999 **
