Submission + - LRO photographs Soviet lunar landers from the 70's (

braindrainbahrain writes: Photographs of the Sea of Crises on the Moon taken by The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, show the Soviet lunar landers, Luna 20, Luna 23, and Luna 24, which landed on the Moon in the 1970s. In addition to the landers, it is possible to see the tracks made by the Lunokhod lunar rover! The Soviet Lunokhod lunar rover predates the first successful Mars Rover by some 30 years

(BTW: Very kewl old-style artists drawings of the soviet crafts on the wikipedia links above)
