WEB DESK: Isn’t it interesting to learn about Moon and life on it and about its surroundings. It is always surprising to hear stories about space and how astronaut got there including time and preps.
Moreover, such missions risky but as well as informative. The crew consist of astronauts goes to explore space for this purpose they pack all the necessary stuff.
But, these are same persons who left things on Moon. No, its not trash but things for ‘good will’. Yes, it sounds bizarre but things like that have been found on the surface of Moon.
A golden olive branch
As mentioned above, many of these objects are left for the sake of ‘good will’, as the symbol of peace. A golden olive branch was left on Moon by the crew of Apollo 11 had the same meaning. According to NASA,“The gesture represented a wish for peace for all mankind.”
A Falcon feather
An astronaut Dave Scott dropped a falcon feather and a hammer at the same, to prove Galileo’s theory that “gravity pulls all bodies equally regardless of weight.” And, both feather and hammer landed at the same time. He later concluded,“This proves that Mr. Galileo was correct in his findings.”
Messages of good will
A silicon disc with peaceful messages written on them was also found on the Moon. Apollo 11 astronauts left it and peaceful statements from leaders of 73 countries were written on them. Its top reads,“Goodwill messages from around the world brought to the Moon by the astronauts of Apollo 11.” And,“From Planet Earth—July 1969,” is written around its rim.
A “fallen astronaut” memorial
The crew of Apollo 15 took an 8.5-centimeter “fallen astronaut” sculpture by artist Paul Van Hoeydonck, who paid tribute to astronauts and cosmonauts who lost their lives during space exploration and placed it next to the plaque listing with names of eight American astronauts and six Soviet cosmonauts who died during service.
Two golf balls
Alan Shepard became the first man who played golf on the Moon when he hit two balls back in February 1971. He thinks his second shot was gigantic which went more than 200 yards however, those golf balls are still there.
