Luna 3
The First to Take Images of Lunar Far Side
Though it returned rather poor pictures by later standards, the never-before-seen views of the Moon's far side caused excitement & interest when they were published. These views showed mountainous terrain, very different from the near side, and only two dark, low-lying regions which were named Mare Moscovrae (Sea of Moscow) and Mare Desiderii (Sea of Desire). Mare Desiderii was later found to be composed of a smaller mare, Mare Ingenii (Sea of Ingenuity), and other dark craters.
Luna 1
The First to Complete a Lunar Flyby
Also known as Mechta (Russian: Мечта, lit.: Dream) was the first spacecraft to reach the vicinity of the Moon and the first of the Luna programme of Soviet automatic interplanetary stations successfully launched in the direction of the Moon. The name "Luna-1" was applied retroactively years later. Luna-1 was originally referred to as the "First Cosmic Rocket", in reference to its achievement of escape velocity.
Luna 2
The First to Reach the Surface of the Moon
The 2nd of the Soviet Union's Luna program spacecraft launched in the direction of the Moon. It impacted the lunar surface west of Mare Serenitatis near the craters Aristides, Archimedes, and Autolycus on Sept. 14, 1959. There were no propulsion systems on Luna 2 itself.
