Americans want to keep traces of their astronauts on the moon

UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) – Public and private companies that want to land on the moon can damage American equipment. It remained on Earth’s satellite since the time of the first expeditions.

Therefore, future flights must be coordinated with the United States. This opinion is shared by the authors of the report “Protection and Preservation of Landings and Artifacts of the Apollo Program”

The document was prepared at the request of the US Congress. Its creators are sure that the American equipment on the Earth satellite has a huge historical and scientific value. It can be used, for example, to study how human devices have changed in the lunar environment in 50 years.

At the same time, American experts are sure that there are no additional contracts to sign. Enough agreement from 1967, which guarantees the inviolability of space property of a country. However, it can be expanded, and to add a point about consultation with the States in case of landing on the Moon. Of course, if space agencies of other countries agree to this.

There were 6 successful expeditions to the moon. The first was held in 1969, and the last – in 1972. For example, the crew of Apollo-15 “namusoril” is almost more than the rest. Astronauts David Scott and James Irwin spent three days on the Earth’s satellite and dropped almost two hundred different objects there. Including, and the first lunar vehicle – rover.
