FIRST Jeopardy! (1/25)

Since we now have another operational rover on Mars, for 400, the first human-created craft to successfully land on any rock other than Earth.

What is Lunokhod 1?

What is Luna 2?

That depends on your definition of ‘land’.

Luna 2’s planned landing was just to hit the surface.
Luna 3 actually soft landed in 1966.


I got Luna 9. Lunokhod 1 was also Luna 17, so that’s out. And I said successful, so Luna 2 is out (it crashed), and Luna 3 never landed (it orbited very closely, but didn’t land). 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8 all either missed or crashed. The first craft to land on another rock would be Luna 9.
