Flowers to the Moon (and sometimes back) by Alina Dzhus

The allure of the Moon's mysteries has swept across the globe, captivating hearts and minds. Inspired by a renowned melody, I embarked on crafting an exquisite infographic. Drawing upon the elegant metaphor of flora ascending towards the nurturing Sun, I meticulously portrayed every triumphant lunar mission as a graceful linear plant. As these botanical representations ascend, mirroring the gradual approach of spacecraft to the lunar surface, they weave a captivating narrative of exploration through time. Moreover, they artfully display the participating nations, their roles etched like delicate petals in the chronicles of Moon discovery. This creative endeavor was fortified by the wealth of open-source information generously shared by space agencies.
