USSA Captain Richard Wade, along with Captain Mark Garris and Captain Michael Hagen, was part of the crew of the Virgo II Lunar Lander. It was the first lunar landing, making contact with the lunar surface on July 16th 1969. The astronauts became the first humans to walk on a celestial body other than Earth.

The lander later ended up on display in the Museum of Technology in Washington, DC.


The landing happened four days before the real-world landing, on the same day that the real-world landing was launched. The mission is the Fallout world's counterpart to the real world's Apollo 11, whose crew consisted of Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin.
