DISCUSSION

The above cover picture shows a pair of Apollo astronauts conducting scientific experiments on the Moon's surface. Their lunar lander stands ready for the return trip to Earth. Though the lander's ladder has too few steps compared to the actual craft, its structure is fairly accurately drawn. Unfortunately, like the majority of pictures including the Earth above a lunar scene, the Earth's terminator is incorrectly drawn. It should be horizontal to the scene rather than vertical.
