These pages should be merged List of current and future lunar missions

Both of the pages are already incredibly out of date and never keep up with the changes in planned launch schedules.

Unnecessary duplications. The current one seems to be better formatted, so probably should merge here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.87.58.153 (talk) 17:31, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

As I see it, the main issue affecting this proposed merge -- the one that makes it not quite a no-brainer -- is that "List of current and future lunar missions" includes future manned missions, whereas "List of lunar probes" doesn't include past manned missions. It doesn't seem logical to merge proposed future manned missions into this article without also adding the Apollo missions. Do we want to do that? Should we have separate sections in this article for manned and unmanned missions, or just one chronological list? And, if manned missions are to be included, what would be an appropriate article title? Can we continue to call it "probes" if includes manned missions? Were the Apollo missions "probes"? 86.183.128.75 (talk) 02:53, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
Disagree. This is a list of past and future lunar missions of both men and unmanned type as per nationality of those missions. It has got nothing to do with probes. --182.185.33.154 (talk) 19:00, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
