See you again after a major objective has been achieved.

This phrase may originate with the Apollo 8 mission, the first time in history humans had passed behind the other side of the moon from earth.
CapCom Gerry Carr spoke to the three astronauts more than 200,000 miles away, "Ten seconds to go. You are GO all the way." Command Module Pilot James Lovell replied, "We'll see you on the other side", and Apollo 8 disappeared behind the Moon, the first time in history men had been occulted. For 34 minutes there would be no way of knowing what happened.

A form of bidding farewell to a close friend or relative when you know that the probability of ever meeting them again in the future is slim and exceedingly marginal, or when you will cease all contact with the aforementioned individual for a considerable time without sitreps.

The phrase was first brought to public attention after Jim Lovell, aboard Apollo 8, uttered the phrase before going dark behind the Moon for 34 minutes. It was later popularized by mainstream media, such as books or films, where the phrase is occasionally used..
Gerry Carr: "Ten seconds to go. You are go all the way."
