Tonight’s programme is the first of two editions building up towards the 50th anniversary of the Moon landings.

In this edition, we look at the latest plans for humanity to return to the Moon. So far, the Chinese, the Israelis and the Indians have all been creating lunar missions, with India planning to send a lunar lander next month. Meanwhile, NASA recently announced they plan to send astronauts back to the moon within five years. Can all these people achieve these ambitions?

The Sky at Night is on BBC Four at 22.00.
