Already our slingshot around the moon is taking us back, on our journey home.

As for the journey back, there is nothing worth reporting. Day after day we continue falling to Earth.

Closer and closer we plummet. We hit the atmosphere. Thankfully our missile walls are so thick that they protect us from the heat.

The angle is just right! And we're heading for the ocean!

Splash down!

Down and down we plunge. But the air in the capsule makes us boyant, so...

We made it! We're back on the surface of Earth!

We did it! We have proven that mankind can reach other planets!

But we can't stop now. The Martians must be watching us. If the human race is to survive, we have to return to the Moon, learn everything we can, and then take the next step: to Mars, and beyond!

Next: the First Men in the Moon
