Year: 1971

FDC made in the Soviet Union, 1971. The text reads:”Lunokhod 1/Moonwalker 1″.
Lunokhod (Russian: “Moonwalker”) was a series of Soviet robotic lunar rovers designed to land on the Moon between 1969 and 1977. Lunokhod 1 was the first roving remote-controlled robot to land on another world.
The 1969 Lunokhod 1A was destroyed during launch, the 1970 Lunokhod 1 and the 1973 Lunokhod 2 landed on the Moon. The successful missions were in operation concurrently with the Zond and Luna series of Moon flyby, orbiter and landing missions.The Lunokhods were primarily designed to support the Soviet manned Moon missions during the Moon race. After the successful Apollo manned moon landings they were used as remote-controlled robots for exploration of the lunar surface and return its pictures.
Not until the 1997 Mars Pathfinder was another remote-controlled vehicle put on an extraterrestrial body. In 2010, nearly forty years after the 1971 loss of signal from Lunokhod 1, the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter photographed the Lunokhod tracks and final location, and researchers, using a telescopic pulsed-laser rangefinder, detected the robot’s retroreflector.
