The scientific results of the lunar exploration missions have been the subject of many articles and books – yet their spiritual implications need not be overlooked. Holy texts of different religions were carried to the Moon, astronauts delivered prayers from the lunar orbit, and some of them even found new spiritual vocations on the Moon. People of all faiths were united in prayer when the astronauts faced danger, and the lunar missions received the blessings of many religious leaders – although there were few voices that saw the lunar landings as spiritually wrong.
