We look forward to getting you back.” This quote shows that the narrator is not freed from Tyler. In the movie, the plan was to explode several buildings that are credit card headquarters.
Wilson describes the twenty-year long process where scientists seek to break open the force field of the artifact and learn of its true nature and reason for its location. When everything fails, they use their last plan of attack which is bombarding it with nukes until only dust remains. Its purpose was never determined as it was soon rendered inoperable by humans, an artifact that withstood the nature of the moon and its forces for an insurmountable time.
