The first man-made object to escape Earth's gravity and pass near the Moon was the Soviet Union's Luna 1, the first man-made object to impact the lunar surface was Luna and the first photographs of the normally occluded far side of the Moon were made by Luna 3, all in 1959. The first spacecraft to perform a successful lunar soft landing was Luna 9 and the first unmanned vehicle to orbit the Moon was Luna 10, both in 1966. The United States' Apollo program achieved the first (and only) manned missions to date, resulting in 6 landings between 1969 and 1972.- wikiScreensaver Picture Count: 22Screensaver Type: SlideshowCredit: All images in this screensaver provided by NASA and the ESA.
