Description
On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin became the first men to ever set foot upon another world, as part of the Apollo program. They spent over 21 hours on the surface, in which time they paved the way for another 140 hours by 10 more individuals. The Apollo Program and Neil Armstrong's momentus first steps were watched by millions worldwide, creating a generation of budding Astronauts and winning America the Space Race. The Apollo Program as it existed ingame is replaced with Project Longshot, a hypothetical spacecraft to Alpha Centauri. The Apollo Program Wonder provides +2 free technologies, +10 Science and provides +3 Scientist slots, making it a beneficial wonder for a Science victory.

Re-released ahead of schedule to commemorate the death of Neil Armstrong on this day, 25 August 2012. Requires Gods & Kings expansion pack, and credit to Sukritact for the Project Longshot icon

Technically,US won the space race...but in reality,russia was first in everything BUT the landing,they just fucked the N-1 Block A,resulting in them failing the launching of their own lander,and thus,losing the space race.

As this millennium is currently in progress, its first two decades, the 2000s and 2010s, are the subject of the historian's attention. The remaining part of the 21st century and longer-term trends are researched in futurology.

21th: digital , 22th: nano , 23rd: information , 24th: warp , 25th: communication age , 26:Revelation age , 27:enlightenment age , 28:apocalyptic age , 29:Hyperion age (science fiction says Mankind stands on the brink of Armageddon) ,
30:retribution age ( the decline of the Earth Empire) and till the 500 quintillion century

" I'd go so far as to say it almost guarantees a Scientific Victory for whoever builds it." - that's the point

I love the mod, but it's a bit too powerful. I'd go so far as to say it almost guarantees a Scientific Victory for whoever builds it.
I'd either reduce the free technologies from 2 to 1, or reduce the +10 Sci and 3 Scientist slots to +2 Sci and 2 Scientist slots.

There's a whole solar system, cooling down and terraforming Venus, Mar's time is long over it will be a good stepping stone maybe we can get something going there but the crust is massively thick as the planet is small and died a long time ago.

The space race isn't over until there's a colony on Mars, so shut up about it and enjoy the damn mod.
