We have been fascinated by outer space for generations. Whenever new worlds are discovered or people go where nobody has ever been before, millions are spellbound. Yet it is often asked: why go back again? What does space have to do with humanity?
The answer: it’s where our future lies.
The Moon is our closest neighbor in the solar system. Since the dawn of time, it has played a defining role in our lives: helping to guide pioneering seafarers, the ruler over the tides, dream destination for aspiring astronauts. Even though humans set foot on its surface more than 40 years ago, it still seems distant and unreachable. But this is about to change forever.
