We return to the moon, sort of. In 20 years it’s still bloody expensive to send humans with life support to the godless vaccuum of the moon. But our ability to control machines directly with our minds is now pretty common tech. So a group of scientists directly control automata, basically Iron Man suits, as they walk over the surface. Of course they not only have cameras for eyes, but also have drilling mechanisms, advanced optical sensors, and little chemical labs in their “stomachs.”   They have touch feedback sensors, but they are crude, basically enough to let them know they are holding something.
