The Lunokhod 1 rover landed on the Moon in November 1970.  It was the first roving remote-controlled robot to land on any celestial body. During its operation, Lunokhod 1 transmitted to Earth more than 20,000 TV images and 206 high-resolution panoramas

Chinese unmanned lunar rover Yutu (Jade Rabbit) that formed part of the Chinese Chang'e 3 mission to the Moon, reached the Moon's surface on 14 December 2013. The mission marked the first soft landing on the Moon since 1976 and the first rover to operate there since the Soviet Lunokhod 2 ceased operations on 11 May 1973

On July 4, 1997, Sojourner, the Mars Pathfinder robotic rover landed successfully on Mars. It explored the Red Plant for almost three months, but covered just over 100 m. The mission carried a series of scientific instruments to analyze the Martian atmosphere, climate, geology and the composition of its rocks and soil. This mission was the first of a series of missions to Mars that included rovers, and was the first successful lander.
