nov 5, 1964 - Mariner 3 Launches
Mankind's first attempt to flyby the great unknown. Mars came into existence a long time ago, however the opportunity for humans to explore the planet's enchanting features became possible. This was the moment where humans would come closer to the force of galactic nature Mars represented. In all its glory, the Mariner 3, made by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, did not reach Mars after being launched into space. This setback did not stop the people from trying to collect the information they intended to get.
