Caption: Ranger spacecraft. The Rangers were a group of US probes launched between 1961 and 1965, some of which were designed to photograph the Moon. They were designed to collide with the Moon, but due to the comparatively poor technology of the day, some of them missed altogether. The later missions returned many detailed pictures, some of which were converted for commercial television viewing.
