SCIENCE SERVICE BOOKLETS : MOON (1974)

SCIENCE SERVICE COVER: MOON (1974)

Copyright, 1974, by Nelson Doubleday, Inc.


DISCUSSION

MOON, a SCIENCE SERVICE publication of 1974, summarized the Apollo lunar landing program as well as reviewed earlier lunar discoveries. Page 37 of the booklet employed an outdated artist's conception of a lunar scene with the caption, "Standing on certain areas of the moon, you might well see this type of landscape..." The scene shows much too jagged topography based on photos brought back to Earth by the Apollo astronauts. Additionally, the Earth's terminator is drawn vertical to the lunarscape rather than horizontal as seen on page 8 in the photo taken by the astronauts on Apollo 8.
