Lunar Bridgehead: The Ranger 7 Story

Upload to

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Published on Jul 30, 2014

Travel back to July 31, 1964, to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, for Ranger 7's meeting with the moon. Before Gemini and Apollo, there were Ranger and Surveyor -- robotic ambassadors that did research that paved the way for one small step that was humanity's one giant leap. This vintage NASA film takes you inside mission control and the press room at JPL during Ranger 7's launch and encounter with the moon.

Ranger 7 navigated to and took more than 4,000 close-up images of the moon before its planned impact.

This film was produced by JPL for NASA in the 1960s
