Great predecessors

Russia is the only country in the world to have accomplished transportation of robotic rovers to the lunar surface. Russian pioneering robotic rovers landed on the Moon in 1970 and 1973 as a part of Soviet program “Lunokhod”. Today our aim is to use this huge experience gained by our scientists in order to have solution for any problem that may appear during our mission on the surface of the only natural satellite of the Earth.
