Surveyor: Lunar Exploration Program: The NASA Mission Reports (NASA Mission Reports) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A complete guide to the critically important Surveyor program, this analysis provides previously unavailable documentation of the lunar exploration NASA conducted between 1966 and 1968. Supplying answers to questions such as Could a spacecraft safely land on the moon and not be swallowed up by lunar dust? Could the extreme temperatures and surface radiation disable the hardware? Could an accurate trajectory be calculated? and Were there places that were flat enough and debris-free to allow a safe landing? this reference details many of the topics that the program researched. A companion CD-ROM, featuring 1,800 additional pages of Surveyor materials as well as restored imagery from the program, is also included.
