The moon is a natural satellite that orbits around Earth, and is the planets only natural satellite.

Background[edit | edit source]

The United States Air Force, on July 16th, 1969, utilized a Virgo II lunar lander that they had dubbed the Valiant 11, in order to land a manned team on the moon; this made them the first human beings to have ever accomplished such a feat. On November 14th of that same year, a Virgo III lander that was dubbed the Valiant 12 landed on the moon, with its accompanying astronauts leaving the national flag of the United States on its surface before their imminent departure.

In 2020, the Delta IX series of rockets were commissioned by the United States Space Administration, all of which underwent subsequent missions to the moon. In 2052, the final manned mission to the moon took place, and during this momentous occurrence, the flag left by the Valiant 12 team was recovered and brought back to Earth, where it was placed on display at Washington, D.C.'s Museum of Technology.

At an unknown point in history, the Sea of Tranquility Conflict was instigated on the moon. While the United States fought in this obscure war against unknown enemies, its conclusion has been lost to history.

Boulder Dome ran controlled scenarios back on Earth for the eventual colonization and terraforming of the moon. It is unknown as to whether or not they completed any successful colonization on the moon itself.
