Dubai, UAE - July 11, 2022: NASA has pursued lunar exploration for decades. Now and again, humanity accomplishes something really wonderful, and National Moon Day praises the event when we first left footsteps upon our closest neighbor, the Moon.
On Thursday, September 2, during the UN-COPUOS 64th Session, Moon Village Association (MVA) submitted a proposal to declare International Moon Day on July 20. To honor the anniversary of man's first landing on the Moon, the proclamation was approved on December 9, 2021, by the UN General Assembly.
On May 25 in 1969, John F. Kennedy, the then president of the United States, said that the Apollo space program would begin. This was the initiating step of NASA's work on a monitored lunar landing. He wanted an American to land on the Moon by the decade's end.
After five years of working hard on the Apollo mission, Apollo 11 landed on the Moon for the first time. In this historical incident, two men, namely Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, became the first humans to step onto the surface of the Moon.
After this, Americans were blessed to receive the whole first TV pictures of the Moon's surface. This was possible because those pictures were sent by Ranger 7, which was NASA's automated probe.
In recent times, many space programs have been initiated to let people understand more about space activities. This has also been possible because NASA collaborated with commercial companies to get the required funding for the projects to go on.
International Moon Day is observed & celebrated for the exploration and knowing the importance of the Moon as the subsequent stage for humankind in opening new perspectives connected with financial, social, and inspirational goals. The Moon brings numerous advantages to the table to humankind; however, these must be divided among all nations and include space and non-space industries.
According to Mr. Basem Barry, founder & CEO of Geohoney, International Moon Day is an excellent opportunity to educate people, raise awareness of humanity's prospects, and collaborate to manage exercises on and around the Moon. In addition, this day offers a perfect chance to interact with people sharing the same passion for the Moon and the planet.
Geohoney fosters increased global cooperation between people and companies worldwide, promoting them to aim for a better world for future generations.
It has been a common belief for centuries that the Moon affects human behavior. Some pieces of evidence showed that lunar cycles affect sleep patterns and menstrual cycles and influence mood and psychiatric health. However, a great deal of research is still needed to conclude more.
Mr. Barry further says that we should all concentrate & look to our own biology rather than to celestial bodies to get answers related to our physical & mental health. To help people appreciate nature and the planet, we continuously try to offer them the best quality natural products. To celebrate this International Moon Day, Geohoney brings an exclusive 15% discount on an entire range of products.
