Will people go back to the Moon?


The Moon has been quiet for a while, but it might get busy once more.

The US are currently studying the surface with unmanned probes in preparation for another visit, though that's not got a set date.

The Russian government has said they want to send people to the Moon by 2025.

And the Google Lunar X Prize is a £12m fund for the first team not linked to a government who get a robotic probe onto the Moon.
