Moon doesn’t belong to the US then who owns it?
Moon mission was accomplished on July 20, 1969, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped on the moon with a team of 12.
Since century’s biggest blood moon on July 27 and Apollo 11 anniversary falls in the same week the moon once again becomes the centre of attraction for all.
But a universal debate is going on these days about “who owns the moon?” Although, America was the first country to put their flags on the planet and even it was American who stepped on the planet.
But Professor Von der Dunk the man who raised this question explained why it is not the US who have flagship over the moon.
He told that just putting a flag doesn’t mean the rightful owner of a whole planet, This counts NASA and USA too. It would be wrong just too even think that flag describes the territory holder.
According to the space expert, the issue of moon ownership was solved at the height of the Cold War by the 1967 Outer Space Treaty – a document co-signed by the US and Soviet Union.
The two nations came to conclusion and decided not to take the human suffering into space.
He said that Once again there would world wars if someone decided to rule over the moon. The legal document published in 1967 gave the right to every nation to research and even explore the moon.
After the Apollo 11 mission in 1969, it made clear that it is possible to explore the space and following this Russian had accomplished many missions on the moon.
This includes other advanced countries too like China, Japan etc. Several missions after the achievement of 1967 made their name as we had seen numerous success and failure.
