The Journey to the
New Moon is The Space Mission of exploring The New Moon, a planet which newly
emerged at a distance of 70,000 light-years away in the Taurus constellation.
THE SNEW MISSION
(South)North)East)West) was launched in 2018 with its major goal of collecting
data about the surface of the New Moon and analyzing whether this planet could
be habitable by human beings.
The first spaceship
with its 4 explorobots touched down in a location which provides easy access to
each of the 4 destinations, at an equal distance. The full dossier
will be regenerated in VR and sent to the Earth. In addition to
serving as advanced research, it is also significant as a type of space observation.
THE NEW MOON
The name of the
planet refers to the naming customs with their intention to remind people of
their motherland as well as to declare the similarities of both areas. In this
case, the main correspondence with the Moon is represented by the several
physical parameters of THE NEW PLANET, which are identical to the lunar ones.

The Journey to the
New Moon is also a reflection upon the nature of exploration.
From the beginning
of its history, humanity aimed to expand its territory by conquering new lands
and peoples and domesticating plants and animals. What are our intentions when
we roam outer space? Are they the same
as the Conquistadors’, who colonized more than half of the world in the Age of
Discovery? Or as the Christians’, who propagated their religion by fair means
or foul? Are we welcoming
guests from another Galaxy? What are our
expectations? Will we be greeted as friends or enemies? Would it be a guest
visit or an invasion? Who will greet us as aliens, and how? Will they
be happy about our desire to settle in their home place?
