first expedition to another world - as astronauts explore the surface of their
home-planet's single moon!
explorers have succeeded in the long journey from their far-off home-world, hanging
watchfully in the night sky. They have traveled in their sleek, needle- nosed
spaceship to this rocky-frozen moon - because it has 'always been there'!
With this new accomplishment - and with a safe return to their own world - their
civilization will now hopefully be poised and encouraged to undertake the loftiest
of goals, the exploration of other moons and planets within the local system.
a small percentage of habitable planets in the galaxy have a moon that constantly
hangs in the sky - appearing as a beacon and eventually as a goal that would encourage
the intelligence and imaginations to reach upward toward!
a moon to reach for - civilizations would be without incentive or imagination!
But with a moon - with such a recognizable goal capable of encouraging and exciting
it's efforts outwards - that is all the difference!
Peoples without a moon in their sky should be pitied - for they are missing the
first step! Indeed - the 'Biggest Step'!
