It is only at the end of the story that the title's significance is revealed. Write a paragraph in which you explain the irony of the story's title, (man lands on the moon) by Sindisiwe Magona
The irony of the story "Man Lands on the Moon" is that numerous achievements have only recently reached the Moon. It is a topic that is frequently discussed. Despite the fact that twelve astronauts landed on the Moon in the following six missions, none of them were female or non-binary. Apollo is the Greek deity of the sun, order, and agriculture, but he is also the ideal of physical and moral excellence, as seen by the missions' titles. The cultural backgrounds of Aldrin and Armstrong, the Apollo 11 mission's two major characters, have had a tremendous impact on their legacies. The photograph by Armstrong is both philosophically and artistically challenging. With the use of a specialist Hasselblad camera, which is mirrored on the surface of Aldrin's space helmet alongside the photographer and other technical equipment, this was shot on film. Because the scale of the Moon is affected by the size of the person, the central figure still fills the majority of the visible space. The two astronauts appear to exchange glances at each other's weird looks as the horizon becomes a single line. Armstrong's photograph is both philosophically and artistically demanding. This is captured on film by a specialized Hasselblad camera, which is visible on the surface of Aldrin's space helmet alongside the photographer and other technical gear. The central figure still takes up the majority of the viewable space since the size of the moon is governed by the size of the person. As the horizon merges into a single line, it appears like the two astronauts are debating one another's strange looks.
