The European and Russian space agencies are to send a lander to an unexplored area at the Moon's south pole.

BBC News has obtained exclusive details of the mission, called Luna 27, which is set for launch in five years' time.

Luna 27 will land on the edge of the South Pole Aitken (SPA) basin.

I don't actually see much in the way of details.
Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand..... I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me.
Take me out, to the black, tell em I ain't coming back..... Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.
