I think that me might have sent satellites to survey the area, but that's about it. I'm not real sure actually, it's a real excellent topic for discussion.

Are you talking about the surveyor probes?

We didnt have time for it, we were in a race where weeks counted. I am afraid our Astronauts were our Guinea Pigs

I'm sure there were probes and even landers that went to the moon before people did... i dont know about robots (nothing like the mars probes and what not) but they would have had to have landed a capsule to make sure they could do it...

sorry I was trying to sound like I actually knew something about it


I just read what was in the link that I posted




Luna 2 was the second of a series of spacecraft launched in the direction of the Moon. The instrument package reached the surface of the Moon on September 14, 1959. The first spacecraft to land on the Moon, it impacted the lunar surface east of Mare Serenitatis near the Aristides, Archimedes, and Autolycus craters. Some 30 minutes after Luna 2, the last stage of its rocket also impacted the Moon.

Several "robots" were sent to be moon. The Russians sent a Rover even. Surveyor was the Amercan series. One of the Apollo moon landings even visited and photographed Surveyor on the surface. I forget which one, but it's not hard to find it on the Web.

did they even have technology for rovers back then?

The Russians sent a rover to show the the same thing could be done without humans. Kind of a face saving thing.

How many times does the same question have to be answered?

did everybody just read the first post and dash off a reply without rading the whole thread?
