Viking I Coincidence

Viking I
I was reading about the successful landing on Mars of the Viking I way back in 1976. The journey took 11 months and the craft had covered some 500,000,000 miles. It landed on Chryse Plain. Then I noticed there was a coincidence attached to the landing.

It seems that the plan was to reach Mars on July 4, 1976 but, by coincidence, it landed instead on the seventh anniversary of the first landing of men on the moon - the 20th of July.

  1. A date I remember well. Have you seen The Dish, a movie based on the Australian's participation in the moon landing.
