Good job on the product placement. That’s how you do it.

Could potentially be a faked AI generated photograph. Send someone to confirm it. lol

Nice, Maybe  Intuitive Machines can help solve America's mass shooting problem.

History has been made again today. A milestone. And to think, this week in 1862 the late John Glenn (RIP) became the third man in space, orbiting planet Earth three times.

I think he's smiling at this, watching from the afterlife.

Boy, am I old. I seem to remember 1862. The Civil War in the US was going on, the Treaty of Saigon was signed, and John Glenn orbited the earth 3 times.

The moon is getting full. 162 years of space flight. At least this time, even though the signal is weak, something might come of it.

Lol. Yes, he would certainly be smiling.

Congratulations to Intuitive Machines on the first privately built vehicle to make it to the moon.

By leaps and bounds. Just wondering if I will see a man on Mars in my lifetime. Exciting times!

Big up to the USA for this amazing achievement!

Let's hope this paves the way for a collaboration between the USA and Japan to put astronauts on the moon by the end of the decade - and by 2050, a joint moon colony.

*Intuitive Machines, the company that built and managed the craft, confirmed that it had landed upright.*

Well given the state of the Japanese lander, this is the first thing every Moon lander mission will have to confirm first, good job.. let the Moon race begin..

I hope they can find out what went wrong with the lasers for next time. Everything can be improved but you need the data to do so.

60 years ago we didn't have cell phones, plasma tv's or even cd players yet apparently we landed people on the moon

No we have iPhone yet can't smoothly land an unmanned craft on th moon???

Maybe you missed it, nowadays they are landing spacecraft on moving asteroids and collecting samples, which is significantly more difficult than landing on the moon.
