I’m not sure about this – that’s the plot of the film, but I don’t think it happened in reality!
Apollo missions are horrendously expensive. You wouldn’t believe how much a single launch costs. Unfortunately, the Apollo missions were closed mostly for this reason. Maybe one day we’ll launch more organised missions into space!
I think the moon missions were also stopped because as well as being very expensive we weren’t learning very much new from them. Perhaps it’s better to save up all of the money and then have a mission to mars? What do you think? Where do you think we should be exploring in space?
