Today, robotics has advanced to the point that landers and rovers operated from Earth provide a capable and cost-effective way to explore the moon.

From research conducted by the Apollo missions, other successful moon landings, dozens of orbiters and powerful telescopes here at Earth, we know more about our one natural satellite than at any point in history. But there is still much to learn. Earlier this year, the Chinese spacecraft Chang’e 4 successfully landed on the far side of the moon.
