Throwback Thursday: First US Lunar Landing

Posted on Posted in Nature, Science, Technology

Today’s “This Day in Tech” throwback comes to you courtesy of the great dreamers and engineers of NASA.

June 2, 1966:

60 years ago today, NASA successfully landed Surveyor 1 in Oceanus Procellarum on the moon. This marked the first time NASA landed a lunar lander (read: didn’t crash!) on our satellite.

Just three years later, NASA would send a manned mission to the Moon, where the team took “One small step for man…”

The rest is, as they say…history!
