Caption

Luna 17 spacecraft. Luna 17 was an unmanned Soviet space mission which landed on the Moon in November 1970. It released a lunar vehicle, Lunokhod 1, which was able to be controlled and moved on the Moon's surface by technicians on the Earth. It collected readings of soil density and mechanical properties. Although it was only designed to last for 3 lunar days, it actually continued transmitting data for 11 lunar, or 322 Earth, days.
