50 years ago today, Zond 2 was launched on the heals of NASA's Mariner 4 
mission to Mars. Thought by some to be carrying a lander but more 
recently believed to be on a photographic flyby mission, Zond 2 failed 
before reaching Mars and has kept space historians guessing ever since. 
This post on Drew Ex Machina examines the latest evidence about this 
enigmatic Mars mission to prove that Zond 2 was neither a lander nor a 
flyby mission.
