From the time of the first lunar explorers in the 1960s and 1970s we discover what these landers and orbiters revealed about our nearest neighbour. The discovery of the Moon’s origin, composition, structure and the accessibility of raw materials on its surface gave us new insights to this world and the history of our Solar System.
The Google Lunar X-PRIZE aims to create new opportunities for future human and robotic presence on the Moon. Learn about the engineering and innovation steps taken by the internationally distributed teams competing to land a spacecraft on the Moon. This 24 minute show highlights the human spirit of competition and collaboration as teams take on the challenge to go back to the Moon for good!
