I wrote this poem two weeks after Odysseus landed. This marked the first return to the moon by an American vessel since December 19, 1972. Odysseus landed on February 22, 2024. It was also the first successful commercial lunar landing. It was also the first successful usage of cryogenic engines in deep space.

The Greeks told the good myth of the hero Odysseus who led a long arduous journey to return home
