In
one
year,the
Orbitershavebeen
major
contributors
to
the
nation's
effort
to
learn
about
the
Moon's
surface,and
haveacquired
a
wealth
of
photographicdetail
which
will
stand
ts
the
definitive
source
of
lunar
surface
Information
for
many
years.
The
first
throe
LunarOrbitermissions
were
In
direct
support
of
the
Apollo
and
Surveyorlunarlandingprograms;
they
Identified
at
least
eight
areas
in
which
potential
manned
landing
looations
exist.

face,
yieldingtelephotopictures
of
99

For
most
of
the

contain
a
hundred-
fold
increase
In
discernible
detail.
Now
Lunar
Orbiter
has
been
given
the
complex
assignment
of
photographing
areas
of
potential
interest
to:
----
the
Apollo
