Nice National Geographic article on the various spacecrafts that landed and crashed on the Moon over the years (for a more detailed description concerning 50 years after Apollo 11, see this link).

Brian,

 

That is a nice one. I have a hard copy of that one too.

 

Frank :)

Yeah, I've got a original one too.  I pulled it out recently for a club meeting.  I had forgotten all of the useful information in the margins so I went hunting for a high res digital copy to have on my tablet.

Interesting to note the location of the proposed Apollo Landing Site 1 and the actual location of the landing.  Is that how far the initial landing site was from the actual site or when Armstrong manually flew to a better location from a second initial location (if you get what I mean)?

Very nice, Brian...I came across this 1969 publication in the past when producing a moon poster, however, I never attained a copy. I remember at the time thinking that it was wonderfully put together. Of course, many of the craters and features on the farside hadn't been given names back then, but today we have hundreds.

I'm pretty sure they just picked site 2 as the first location.  Armstrong had mere seconds to correct course. And Site 1 looks to be about 100+ miles away from 2...
