What other Moon missions have there been?

Astronaut David Scott of Apollo 15

Since the first Moon landing, there have been five other manned missions to the Moon.

They were Apollo 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17, and all were run by the US space agency, Nasa. Apollo 13 was meant to go to the Moon, but had technical problems.

The last people walked on the Moon in 1972.

Since then, lots of countries have landed probes on the Moon, but none with people aboard.
