Event A: Manned Moon landing

Event B: Unmanned probe landing on the moon and returing soil samples

Event A is rare and happened 6 times (Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17), event B happened 3 times. Thus event B is even rarer(?) than event A.

I am not a native speaker, can you please tell me the correct word to use in place of "rarer"?

I'm sorry, your English was fine, my brain just wasn't turned on and I misread what you wrote, and indeed what I quoted you as saying. Apologies!
