blew Ranger 3 to smithereens and then proceeded away at 10,000 mph.”

December 22, 2017 Denver, Colorado -Fifty-five years ago on January 26, 1962, the United States attempted its first effort to launch a Ranger 3 spacecraft toward the moon with the goal to study radar reflectivity of the lunar surface. Ranger 3 was also expected to transmit pictures of the moon in the last 10 minutes before deliberately smashing onto the lunar ground, an impact that would be studied with a seismometer dropped before impact.
