(ORDO NEWS) — On July 21, 1969, the Apollo 11 mission took place. Michael Collins then got a key role: he was responsible for the delivery of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to our natural satellite. It is interesting that the astronaut would not like to repeat the success.
Collins spent nearly a day alone in the orbiting space module when his colleagues stepped onto the lunar surface. In 2019, the man returned to Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center. It was with him that a mission, known to the whole world, once began.
Michael Collins was asked about his thoughts on the Artemis program. The astronaut said that he certainly would like to go to space again, but not to the moon, but straight to Mars. The name “Artemis” is well chosen, but there are only questions about the mission plan, said the 90-year-old man.
During his lifetime, Armstrong was sure that a flight to the moon would greatly help in the process of Mars exploration. Joe Biden intends to continue Trump’s space policy: within a few years, a man and a woman will go to our natural satellite.
