In order to reach the moon, astronauts would need to launch a rocket and fly to the far side of the planet in a capsule that was specially modified for the mission.
They would then use their craft to dock with a giant robotic arm, which would pull them up to the surface and onto a robotic probe, where they would spend several months exploring the lunar surface.
After the lunar landings, astronauts aboard the probe would spend a year on the moon.
After that, the astronauts would be able to spend their time on other missions, like exploring Mars or another nearby world.
IGN’s Apollo 11 astronauts would spend their first year on Earth as part of the Apollo 13 mission.
In 2018, the space agency released the first official pictures of the spacecraft that would fly to and land on the Moon.
