Moon's surface. Photocopy of an image taken by the Soviet lunar probe Zond 3, on 1st September 1966, showing the cratered surface of the far side of the Moon. Zond 3 was an unmanned Soviet spacecraft that was launched on 18th July 1965 and was part of the Mars 3MV project. However, the original launch window was missed making Mars unattainable, so the probe was launched as a spacecraft test instead.
