Probably Luna 2 and it's upper stage rocket. Remember, the Russians were first on the moon in 1959. Luna 2 crashed into it at full pelt, but it was first. It's upper stage flew alongside it. Luna 2 discovered important scientific facts about the moon. See the Wikipedia link below for more details.

It's takes a lot of energy to send a rocket to the moon. A Saturn V moon rocket was needed during the Apollo space mission. If you have ever stood next to a Saturn V moon rocket at a museum, you will see it takes a lot of energy to send an object to the moon.
