Some time between 75010 and 75000 BCE, Jupiter, Juno, and Minerva, members of the Isu, sought a solution to the incoming solar flare that would strike and scorch the Earth. One of their earliest possible solutions came into being when they discovered that once enough humans sat in thrall of the Pieces of Eden, their thoughts would become a reality. With this discovery at hand, the trio sent an Apple of Eden into space to enthrall the Earth so that they could wish the solar flare's threat away, but the Apple's beam was out of place. The trio ultimately sent a dozen Apples into the sky, but they all propelled out of their direction. One of these Apples crashed on the Moon and remained there for several millennia.
In the 1960s, the Templars sought to recover the Apple from the Moon, and manipulated NASA into initiating the Apollo program. On 20 July 1969, the Apple was retrieved from the Moon's surface by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, the first two humans to walk on the Moon.
