Abstract:

The paper describes a camera which, as the payload of an early space vehicle, could photograph the moon. The resulting pictures would be superior to those obtained either by telescope, such as the 200-in. Mt. Palomar telescope or by television camera, such as those carried by Pioneers I and III. The film would be returned to earth in a recoverable capsule. Author
