Retro Saturday: Assignment: Shoot the Moon

Click the arrow to watch the film. Video source: wdtvlive42 YouTube channel.

Our Retro Saturday films the last two weeks have focused (no pun intended) on documentaries about 1960s NASA programs to photograph the Moon in preparation for a human lunar landing.

We wrap that series with a 25½-minute 1967 NASA film called Assignment: Shoot the Moon. It covers Project Ranger and the Surveyor lander programs, but much of it focuses (pun intended, this time) on the pictures returned by Lunar Orbiter.
