SP-168 EXPLORING SPACE WITH A CAMERA

The course of the spacecraft camera's picture coverage of Mars and the locations of the pictures on pages 130-133 are shown on this map.

The photographs on the four following pages were taken by a television camera that was nearly 150 million miles away, farther from Earth than any camera had ever traveled before. It was riding on Mariner IV, which, after an interplanetary journey of 7 1/2 months, flew within 9847 kilometers of Mars on July 15, 1965.
