The later Apollo missions Apollo 15 and Apollo 16 to the moon each left a subsatellite behind in lunar orbit to conduct remote scientific measurements of the moon from orbit. The Apollo 15 and Apollo 16 subsatellites were identical.

The subsatellite mission ended with impact of the Apollo 16 subsatellite on the far side of the Moon on May 29. 1972
