Spelling[edit]

To clarify, I placed the {{Use British English}}, {{Use DMY dates}} and {{British English}} tags on this article and its talk page respectively, to reflect a matter of fact - that the page was started in, and has evolved in, British English with DMY dates - since an inexperienced editor had started using other spellings. Since the article doesn't cover any specific country there are no national ties to justify changing, so WP:ENGVAR and MOS:TIES state that this should not be changed. True, the United States has conducted missions to the Moon, but they do not have a monopoly on the subject. In any case undiscussed changes of dialect are considered disruptive editing. --W. D. Graham 00:45, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Seems like you started the article. Alright then, keep it in BrE per WP:ENGVAR. - M0rphzone (talk) 07:28, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Destination is different to study objective[edit]

The list in the Moon exploration article tries to include all missions that were conceived to perform scientific studies either of the Moon itself or physical and/or biological impact of the satellite environment; it excludes missions such as ISEE-3 that approached the Moon due to orbital dynamics requirements to fulfil its mission that are present in the List of missions to the Moon article. So I think these lists should not be merged as they have different goals. Tom Paine (talk) 02:20, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
