While the spacecraft was intentionally downed on October 11, 1967, scientists had yet to find the crash site–til now.
The wreckage is thought to have been located by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) which is currently mapping the lunar surface in unprecedented detail. During its mission so far, the spacecraft has gathered more than 192 terabytes of data; that's nearly 41,000 DVDs worth of data, images and maps! One of its key findings is our solar system's coldest spot: a crater near the moon's north pole was recorded at minus 415 degrees Fahrenheit. Brrr!
Some of the images LRO has captured can be seen below, but you can also find more here.
