Fifty years after the United States put the first man on the moon, space agencies and private companies around the world are now setting their sights towards a renewed era of lunar exploration. In January, China became the first nation to successfully send a lunar probe to study the far side of the moon. The US space agency NASA announced last week its accelerated timeline to build the first lunar orbit outpost, and put the first woman on the moon by 2024. And by September, India is planning to have its own rover and lander examining the moon’s southern pole.
