Caption

Model of the Luna 4 spacecraft. This Soviet unmanned spacecraft was launched on 2 April 1963. It is thought that it was intended to impact the Moon and take photographs of the lunar surface as it neared impact. However, the failure of a midcourse correction meant that its trajectory took it past the Moon on 5 April 1963. The spacecraft entered a large orbit around the Earth and Moon, but ceased transmitting on 6 April 1963.
