Apollo at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Most widely revered of the Greek gods. He communicated the will of his father Zeus, made humans aware of their guilt and purified them of it, presided over religious and civil law, and foretold the future. His bow symbolized distance, death, terror, and awe; his lyre symbolized music, poetry, and dance. As a patron of the arts, he was often associated with the Muses. He was also a god of crops and herds. He became associated with the sun, and was even identified with Helios, the sun god. Also associated with healing, he was the father of Asclepius. By tradition, Apollo and his twin, Artemis, were born at Delos to Leto. Apollo's oracle was established at Delphi; the Pythian Games commemorated his killing (while still an infant) of the serpent Python to take the shrine. His many lovers fared poorly: the fleeing Daphne became a laurel tree; the unfaithful Coronis was shot by Artemis, and Cassandra, who rejected him, was doomed to utter true prophecies no one would believe.

NASA moon-landing project of the 1960s and '70s. The Apollo spacecraft, supplied with their own low-powered rockets, could brake on approach to the moon and go into lunar orbit. They also could release part of the spacecraft, the lunar module, with its own rocket power, to land astronauts on the moon and bring them back to the lunar orbiter. In July 1969 Apollo 11 made the first lunar landing (see E. Aldrin, N. Armstrong). In 1970 Apollo 13 was damaged by an explosion in an oxygen tank but returned safely to earth. Later Apollo missions explored the lunar surface extensively, collecting samples of moon rocks and installing instruments for research. Apollo 17, the program's final flight, took place in 1972.
