Mariner IV
« on: 12/25/2005 04:05 PM »
Here's a little Christmas present for NASA Space Flight Readers, personal recollections of the Mariner IV mission, the first flyby of Mars, from Bill Momsen the imaging engineer for JPL's Mariner series of missions.

"This is the story of Mariner IV, the world's first mission to the planet Mars. Among many important discoveries, it consigned the canal theory to limbo. A description of the mission and spacecraft is augmented by the author's personal experiences while associated with this historic undertaking"
