Guided by commands from the SFOF, Surveyor VII successfully soft-landed on the moon near the crater Tycho on a mission of scientific exploration. The last contact with the spacecraft occurred on February 20, 1968, at which time over 21,000 television pictures had been received by the network stations, including several pictures viewing the earth. The stations also received many hours of data from the Alpha scattering experiment, designed to determine...
