Neil Armstrong went on to land on the moon in 1969. The first human being ever to do that. Eugene Cernan, another NASA astronaut, blasted off from the surface of the moon in 1972, the last human being ever to do that.

The Moon is in : it rotates about its axis in about the same time it takes to Earth. This results in it nearly always keeping the same face turned towards Earth. The Moon used to rotate at a faster rate, but early in its history, its rotation slowed and became in this orientation as a result of effects associated with deformations caused by Earth. The side of the Moon that faces Earth is called the , and the opposite side the . The far side is often inaccurately called the "dark side", but in fact, it is illuminated as often as the near side: once per lunar day, during the new moon phase we observe on Earth when the near side is dark. In 2016, planetary scientists, using data collected on the much earlier Nasa mission, found two hydrogen-rich areas on opposite sides of the Moon, probably in the form of water ice. It is speculated that these patches were the poles of the Moon billions of years ago, before it was tidally locked to Earth.
