1958 – Pinoeer 0, fails during launch on board a Thor-Able rocket. Pioneer 0 was going to contain a TV camera, and orbit the Moon, this was part of the Space Race. Two interesting notes from this mission. First, due to the turbulent nature of the Space Race and the world at the time, this mission was retroactively named Pioneer 0, the original names were Able-1 (mission) and Thor-Able-1 (launch vehicle). Second, the Black and White paint pattern on the NASA vehicles at the time were an attempt to control internal temperatures.
Hopefully everyone know what a podcast and history fan I am , so take a listen to this over at Wondery (I was not paid for this link)
