Surveyor 3

  • The United States yesterday successfully landed its second unmanned spaceship on the moon.
  • Surveyor 3, carrying a tiny shovel to scoop moon soil to test whether it can take the weight of a manned ship and its astronauts, may have come to rest inside a lunar crater, space officials said to-day.
  • The exciting discovery was made as scientists studied the first of three batches of television pictures transmitted by the spacecraft.
  • Its position would account for the unexpected solar glare which blurred the first pictures.
