    The Apollo missions left an immense legacy to the scientific world, in the scientific and technological achievements of the programme and, especially, in the samples of the Moon that they returned to Earth. This material is the basis for our understanding of the geological history of the Moon and of the early history of the Earth and the solar system. Yet this complex history hangs on samples from just six landing sites; the rest of the Moon will offer a rich archive of information from the evolution of the Moon, the early Earth and perhaps even the other planets, should we ever explore it.
