Artwork of Apollo spacecraft over Moon

Apollo spacecraft. Artwork of one of the Apollo spacecrafts used to land men on the Moon. The left half, called the command and service module (CSM), carried fuel, rocket engines and the command module pilot, who remained in orbit during a landing. The right half, the lunar module, separated from the CSM to land on the Moon. The bottom half of the lunar module remained on the Moon after completion of the mission and the top part returned to lunar orbit to dock with the CSM. Only the central, v-shaped part of the craft - the command module - returned to Earth. The last Apollo spacecraft to land on the Moon was Apollo 17 in 1972

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable artwork of the Apollo spacecraft hovering gracefully over the Moon's surface. A symbol of human ingenuity and exploration, this particular spacecraft played a pivotal role in landing men on the lunar landscape. Divided into two halves, each with its unique purpose, it exemplifies the complexity and precision required for such a monumental mission. The left half, known as the command and service module (CSM), housed essential components like fuel, rocket engines, and most importantly, the command module pilot who remained in orbit while their fellow astronauts embarked on their lunar descent. On the right side lies the lunar module which separated from the CSM to touch down on our celestial neighbor. Once its duty was fulfilled, only its bottom half would remain behind while its top part rejoined with the CSM in lunar orbit. A testament to human achievement and determination is encapsulated within this artwork; it represents mankind's ability to push boundaries beyond Earth's atmosphere. The Apollo program marked an era of manned spaceflight that forever changed our understanding of what is possible. As we gaze upon this awe-inspiring image captured by Science Photo Library, let us reflect upon humanity's relentless pursuit of knowledge and exploration that culminated with Apollo 17 - marking both an end and a beginning for space travel as we know it today.
