Plot: Ending explained
Yes, Space Force does make it to the moon in the end.
The ending has left us on a rather dramatic note where it is seen that the lives of both the Chinese and United States astronauts is in danger.
The Chinese claim America’s initial Apollo 11 landing spot in the Mare Tranquillitatis (Sea of Tranquility) ,
They takeover the spot of Neil Armstrong’s American flag in their lunar rover.
Since China is able to put base on the moon before the United States hence they get the claim over the surface of the Sea of Tranquillity,
This illegal action causes tension between the two nations.
When the US crew reaches the base they are ordered by the Secretary of Defence to destroy the rival base but
General Naird opposes this as a result he is arrested bySpace Force taken over by Air Force general Kick
Grabaston (Noah Emmerich).
He ordered the astronauts to proceed with the attack and they did so,destroying the Chinese space lab which
strangely appeared to be empty.
Upon their return they realize the Chinese scientists had the same idea of destroying the American base.
Both the habitats had been destroyed and hence the life of all the scientists is in danger.
On the other hand General Naird manages to escape the arrest and takes a helicopter to save
his daughter from the dangerous drug dealers.
On the way Naird also finds his wife Maggie (Lisa Kudrow) who had broken out of the prison
with the help of a warden.
They all board the helicopter just about when Naird finds out about the chaos on the moon ,
hence he is left with a situation of choosing between his family and returning to Space Force to save the astronauts.
