We are going, together. American companies are joining our #Artemis program to provide science & technology deliveries to the lunar surface. What #AskNASA questions do you have about commercial Moon deliveries? Send them & check back for responses:
50 years ago, the number of human visitors to the lunar surface doubled. On Nov. 19, 1969, #Apollo12 astronauts Pete Conrad & Alan Bean landed their Lunar Module on the Moon, then completed 2 spacewalks. Richard Gordon orbited above in the Command Module.
During #Apollo12 , the people who helped build the spacecraft got to help name them as well. The command module name Yankee Clipper and lunar module name Intrepid were selected from suggestions from employees of each spacecraft's prime contractor. #Apollo50
More Shotwell: "We're aiming to be able to drop Starship on the lunar surface by 2022."
@NASAJPL @airandspaceS @LRO_NASAurveyor wasn't the only robotic forerunner to Apollo. For example, i #OTDn 1966, Lunar Orbiter 2 officially began its photographic mission at the Moon. This view shows Copernicus crater.
Are there any proposed NASA missions to land in a lunar lava tube? Bonus points if the lander is shaped like a giant golf ball.
Wait. Who is delivering the Peruvian takeout? Which mail order is delivering the dress shoes for that lunar occasion?

Hello! This is Chandrayaan 2 with a special update. I wanted to let everyone back home know that it has been an amazing journey for me so far and I am on course to land on the lunar south polar region on 7th September. To know where I am and what I'm doing, stay tuned!
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chief, K Sivan to ANI:We've found the location of #Vikram Lander on lunar surface&orbiter has clicked a thermal image of Lander. But there is no communication yet. We are trying to have contact. It will be communicated soon. #Chandrayaan2
