Lunar Orbiter 1 becomes the 1st US spacecraft to orbit the Moon. It’s goal was to photograph the Apollo landing sites.

Above is a newly restored 42-year-old image of Earth was released by NASA. The Lunar Orbiter 1 spacecraft took the iconic photograph of Earth rising above the lunar surface in 1966.
