And then Galileo made his telescope and observed it in some detail. That started to take the mystery out of that heavenly body while raising more questions. If you have ever looked at the moon and its craters through a telescope you know what We’re talking about.
But it wasn’t until 1964 that we saw it up close. That is when the Ranger 7 space probe took detailed pictures of the surface before crashing into the surface. It would be another half decade before the Apollo 11 crew would actually walk upon its surface, but the photos were a critical step that had to be taken before Neil Armstrong could make that memorable first step by man on the moon.
