Apollo


Apollo was the name given to the missions by N.A.S.A. to get a man on the moon. The first missions ( 7 - 10 ) didn't actually set a man on the moon, they were dry runs. The first mission to land on the moon was 11 by Neil A. Armstrong. Apollo 13 had to be aborted due to a problem with the oxygen tank. If you want to know more about this, watch the film 'Apollo 13' starring Tom Hanks cast as James Lovell. Since Apollo 17, there has been no attempt to get to the moon as we've been there, there done that. In 2004, President George W. Bush set out a vision to get man back on the moon by 2020 with the longer term plan of getting to Mars. The plans have either been silently dropped since then or are making slow progress.
