Ranger 4 crashes into the moon!

On April 26, 1962, Ranger 4, an American spacecraft designed to transmit lunar images back to earth, crashed into the surface of the moon at a fucking ridiculously fast 9600 km/h.  Damn!  

The strong-fisted leader of the project had no comment on the crash, but later went on to vent to a fellow project manager.  The only images returned by the Ranger 4 are few, but some alien life was found in these close up photos: here, here, here, here and here.

The path to the moon was later realized by this man, who went on to show us all what the moon was really all about.
