+Tanner Hagen Ultimately, that is the plan. Once the project is finished and a 3D model produced, the data will be free to download and use for variety of purposes, including 3D printing.

50 Years Ago Today: Ranger 9 made a planned impact on the Moon. The Ranger series of spacecraft gave scientists their first close look at the lunar surface. Nine Rangers were launched between 1961 and 1965, but only Rangers 7, 8, and 9 successfully completed their 65-hour journeys to the Moon and transmitted television pictures of the lunar surface during the final minutes before impact. This video shows the view from Ranger in the last few seconds before impact: http://bit.ly/1xeAzhT 

A Ranger spacecraft made of parts from Ranger test vehicles is on display at our Museum in Washington, DC: http://bit.ly/1Cmkozl
