Sepia Saturday - Photos With the Relatives

Ever visit a relative and have your photo taken with them before you leave?

Photo: NASA (click to mafnify)

This photo is exactly that. It shows the commander of Apollo 12 standing next to Surveyor 3 which was launched in 1967, 31 months before Conrad and Bean landed on the moon.

The resolution of these NASA photos is incredible. Look closely over Conrad's left shoulder. On the hill is the lunar module, a satellite communication dish, and the American flag.

This photo is particularly extraordinary as it also shows the only time one space launched vehicle was visited by mankind travelling in another vehicle, on another planet.
