“This is the gold replica of an olive branch, the traditional symbol of peace, left on the Moon’s surface by Apollo 11 crew members. Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, commander, placed the small replica (less than half a foot in length) on the Moon. The gesture represented a wish for peace for all mankind.” — NASA
