Do We Have the Tech to Colonize the Moon?
Leonhard Bernold, Cosmos Magazine
Humans reached the Moon for the first time in July 1969. It was the pinnacle of a technological arms race during the Cold War and it captured the imagination of the world.
Only a year later, the first remotely controlled robot, called Lunokhod 1, travelled more than 10km using solar energy, and was the original precursor of modern solar-powered cars. These were incredible feats of engineering, and an exciting time in our history because it marked a new era of exploration for humans.
