Construction kit of Pioneer 33 Launch Vehicle.

The Thor missile program was initiated in December 1954, when USAF headquarters issued requirement for a tactical missile intended to travel a distance of between 1 150 and 2 300 miles. Thor was undertaken as a high-risk program having the goal of achieving flight within the shortest possible time. The Thor had its first complete launch pad test in January 1957 and a full-range flight test in September 1957.
In 1959, the newly formed NASA asked Douglas to create a civilian launch vehicle based on Thor Able. The new rocket was presenting the fourth configuration for the Thor, so it was named Delta - the military code for the fourth letter of the alphabet. By 1965, the Delta has evolved into its "E" version. The Thor first stage was powered by a Block III engine and was augmented by 3 Castor solid rockets. The Delta E introduced an enlarged 2nd stage with re-start capability. The 3rd stage was either an ABL X-258 or FW-4D solid rockets.
First Delta E (no. 39) demonstrated it's capability by sending a probe toward the Moon. Explorer 33 was designed to orbit the Moon measuring solar wind, magnetic fields, lunar gravity and local radiation. Delta 39 launched Explorer 33 on July 1, 1966. The rocket gave the satellite too much velocity, so the satellite missed the Moon and settled into high eliptical Earth orbit.
