RANGER PROGRAM.
2 large spools of 35mm film containing duplicate negatives of photographs taken by Ranger VIII and IX, in period boxes.

The Ranger Program (1961-1965) aimed to obtain high-resolution images of the lunar surface. Nine missions flew, of which seven carried cameras. The spacecraft were designed to fly directly into the Moon's surface, beaming back image after image until final impact. The radio signals beamed back by the Ranger probes were received at NASA's Goldstone station in California, projected onto kinescopes, and transferred onto 35mm film.
