PhD student Margot Trudell has created this wonderfully detailed moon mission graphic chart is part of the website for her thesis project. The chart lists all of the attempted missions to the moon in chronological order with the dates and countries of origin, whether or not they succeeded and the kind of craft each mission was (i.e. lander, rover, orbiter etc.).

This moon mission graphic is a great account of man’s attempts at space travel in the 1950s and 1960s and all the way up until the last manned moon mission in 1972. The chart is also a good look at the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union that occurred during the Cold War. This Moon Mission graphic is a great way of organization historical data on man’s attempts at reaching the moon.
