<p><strong> Answer: Falling Astronaut </strong></p>
<p> In 1971, the crew of Apollo 15 placed a small sculpture on the lunar surface along with a metal plaque propped up owned by it. This tiny sculpture — a little over 3 — long — became the first (and to date only) art installation on the Moon </p>
<p> Prior to the Apollo 15 mission, astronaut David Scott with Belgian artist Paul Van Hoeydonck at a dinner party. Scott commissioned Van Hoeydonck to create a small statue to commemorate the astronauts and cosmonauts that had lost their lives in furthering humanity's space exploration efforts. The result of the commission was <em> Fallen Astronaut </em>a small aluminum figure of simple design that, per Scott's instructions, is not identifiable as male, female, or any particular ethnic group, but simply as human. </p>
<p> After getting permission from top NASA management prior to the mission, Scott and his fellow astronauts smuggled the statue of the Apollo 1<div class=
5 launch and covertly placed, and photographed, the memorial on the surface of the Moon. Only after returning to Earth did they publicly disclose it to a post-mission press conference.

After the disclosure, the National Air and Space Museum requested that a replica be made for public display, which was given to the Smithsonian Institution the following year. It is now on display with a replica of the plaque in the Museum's National Mall in the Space Race Wing, Gallery 114.
