HistoryEdit

Ranger 3 is the shuttle like space probe used by Buck Rogers for his five month exploration of the solar system. Ranger 3 was the designation of the long range space probe that Buck Rogers was selected to fly on a six month exploration of the Solar System in 1987.

The Ranger 3 received an upgrade in the 2nd season, missing its tailfin and its wings reconfigured, the ends swept upwards - as well as the interior reconfigured to hold passengers.

TriviaEdit

In the narration intro Buck's spacecraft is called "Ranger 3". But the Ranger series spacecraft were unmanned lunar landers, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration never repeats project names to avoid confusion.
