Together With an American flag, astronauts at first left a spot honoring the fallen Apollo 1 team on the moon, in addition to a plaque that checks out: “Here males from the world Earth initially set foot upon the moon. July 1969 A.D. We can be found in peace for all humanity.”

Ever Since, as The Atlantic has actually reported, roughly 400,000 pounds of product have actually been left on the moon. This consists of unmanned area automobiles, climb and descent stations, moon buggies, golf balls, and a household picture coming from Charles Duke of the Apollo 16 objective.
