Introducing the usage in planetary exploration as illumination of surface in robotic lunar exploration needs new testing techniques. Commercial LEDs are available in many packages, most SMD mounting and, in many cases, finished with a silicone glob top. The degradation caused by lunar regolith exposure onto all these options is unknown and shall be assessed by testing.
