Go ! We love the first image. It is taken by MarCO-B, one of the small, experimental cube-sats that accompanied Insight on its journey to Mars. The second image is an artist's depiction of MarCO-A and MarCO-B.

Mariner 4 launched on November 28, 1964. It returned the first close-up pictures of Mars. Mariner 4 became a destroyer of worlds. Dreams of landscapes of life and canal-like structures were shattered when images of a cratered, and seemingly dead world were returned.

Nov 19, 1969 Apollo 12 makes a pinpoint landing, yards from Surveyor 3. It's a stunning achievement for Mission Control and crew. Commander Pete Conrad’s first words on the surface are “Whoopie! Man, that may have been a small one for Neil, but that's a long one for me."

Members of the astro corps like the odd practical joke. When the Skylab 4 crew arrived at the station, they found three figures in occupation, dressed in flight suits. Their companions were three dummies left there by Al Bean, Jack Lousma, and Owen Garriott from Skylab 3.

November 14, 1969. Apollo 12 launches and is struck by lightning. The command module's systems erupt in a fury of warnings and lost data. A single calm suggestion to try setting "SCE to AUX" from flight controller John Aaron will save the whole mission.
