The theory does not address the major discrepancy between the Moon depicted in Kubrick's cinematic masterpiece and the alleged hoax videos of the Apollo 11 mission. She said it was special for her family because her mother worked at Grumman on the lunar module that landed Armstrong and Aldrin on the moon.

Remembering fellow astronaut Neil Armstrong, who died in 2012, Collins said the first man to walk on the moon was a superlative crew commander and incredible spokesperson as the group of three astronauts travelled the world following the mission. We, the human race, have not returned to the moon because it is immensely hard to land a craft on another celestial body. They take this picture as they look back at the Earth, which went on to become one of the most famous photographs to be taken of the planet during the Apollo programme.

NASA hasn't developed a lunar lander since the end of the Apollo program in 1972. Artemis is named after the Greek goddess of the moon and twin to Apollo.
