Only 24 people have ever left Earth orbit and journeyed close to the Moon. The last people to walk on the Moon were Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt, who left the Moon’s surface on December 14, 1972 and returned to Earth in their Apollo spacecraft. Since then no one has been closer to the Moon than low-Earth orbit.
We will take you to within a few hundred kilometers of the Moon’s surface. You will see the illuminated far side of the Moon, and then witness the amazing sight of the Earth rising above the surface of the Moon.
Mankind can only progress to become a space faring race by taking the small steps necessary to reduce the costs of access to space. This mission will be one of those small, but very significant steps.
