Artist's Description

Lunokhod (Russian: Луноход, “Moonwalker”) was a series of Soviet robotic lunar rovers designed to land on the Moon between 1969 and 1977.

The Lunokhods were primarily designed to support the Soviet manned moon missions during Moon race. Instead, they were used as remote-controlled robots for exploration of the lunar surface and return its pictures after the successful Apollo manned lunar landings and cancellation of Soviet manned moon program.

The Lunokhods were transported to the lunar surface by Luna spacecraft, which were launched by Proton-K rockets. The moon lander part of the Luna spacecraft for Lunokhods were similar to the ones for sample return missions. The Lunokhods were designed by Alexander Kemurdzhian1 at Lavochkin.(Wikipedia)
