As someone who was born shortly after the last Manned Moon Landing, this map brings forth a certain amount of nostalgia.

You have a lander, a flag (UN?) and what seems to be the wall of a crater (Will we see the rest of it in future maps?). The map does indeed evoke the feel of the first steps offworld.

As the other reviewer noted, finding a use for this map could prove tricky, though it could do well for a 'first contact' situation.

A minor nitpick is that the designer neglected to include a top hatch for the lunar lander, in the Apollo program this hatch joined to the spacecraft that bought the lander to the Moon and on one mission the astronauts looked out this hatch to get their bearings before setting foot on the surface. Perhaps this could be included in an update?

A scene that hopefully will be enshrined for all posterity... this recaptures the excitement of the first Moon landing in 1969, taking me back to an excited small girl who stayed up all night to watch!

Of course, it won't look quite like this. Here we have the lander entire, ascent stage as well as the descent stage. The flag appears to be that of the United Nations rather than the United States.

Otherwise, however, it's wonderfully evocative. The barren landscape, which as you look closer has far more texture than you might imagine. The lander itself, in top-down view, in all its weird almost spider-like glory.

Not quite sure what you would use this for... but it's nice to look at!
