The billionaire founder Moris Kahn happened to announce the plans that he has. Further, he said that he was going to put it on the moon, and the mission will get completed.

Thu, in this way, the advances in science and technology are used with proper investments to research bit more about the present condition of space and the moon especially. The stories of the space are never-ending. But the missions are to be accomplished. The lunar landers are now the major part of the curiosity of the people. Stay tuned to know about the further attempts that are to be made.
