China lands a rover on the lunar surface and off it goes to do science. India sends an orbiter to Mars. Iran sends a monkey into space. What was once the purview of the United States and the Soviet Union is now there for anyone.

Here the rover extricated itself from the lander and began exploring. The music is insufferable. I suggest muting your audio.
