In November 1970, the lunar surface was reached by the 8EL No. 203 spacecraft, better known as Lunokhod-1, which became a symbol of an entire epoch in space exploration.

Lunokhod-1 worked three times longer than the originally calculated resource.

During his stay on the surface of the Moon, he traveled 10 km, transmitted 211 lunar panoramas and 25 thousand photos to Earth.
