1967 Shoot the Moon

video archive 1

The early space program.

This 1967 NASA film "Assignment: Shoot The Moon" explores the dificulties involved in making accurate pictures of the Lunar surface with unmanned spacecrafts.  In part 2 (7:58) they mention radiation and how solar flares could had affected the photographs. Also note in part 2 (1:32) how the light-weight Surveyor sank into the lunar soil, something that did not happen to the Apollo lander. In part 3 (5:11) is this an actual view of the Earth from the moon? And what about the strange solar eclipse caused by the Earth in part 3 (1:30). This information from 1967 contradicts many of the claims made by the Apollo project.
