At the Pima Air and Space Museum, Ewen Whitaker talks about his work studying the Moon with Gerard Kuiper. He not only participated in the Ranger program and later the Surveyor and Lunar Orbiter programs, but he was the one who identified the crater that the Surveyor III spacecraft had landed in so that the Apollo 12 crew could land next to it and visit it in November 1969. This image was taken at 18mm focal length with an exposure of 1/100 seconds at f/3.5, ISO 800.
