To get you geared up for the wonderful list of techtivities (tech + activities!) we’ve got for you this month, here’s an interesting tech fact about the month of August! 

Did you know that on August 10, 1966, the first NASA robotic spacecraft to circle the moon was launched?

Aptly named, “Lunar Orbiter I”, it had the mission to take possible landing sites for future Apollo missions (NASA’s human and robotic missions to the Moon)!
