    AMERICA'S LATEST PICTURES OF THE MOON SHOW THE HIDDEN SIDE - BUT THERE ARE NO SURPRISES, IT LOOKS VERY MUCH LIKE THE SIDE THAT CAN BE SEEN FROM THE EARTH.

    THE LATEST MOON PHOTOGRAPHER IS LUNAR ORBITER-5 WHICH WAS LAUNCHED LAST WEDNESDAY. IT HAS TAKEN 48 PICTURES OF THE MOON SO FAR AND IS SCHEDULED TO TAKE MORE THAN 200 BEFORE IT RUNS OUT OF FILM ON AUGUST 18TH.

    THE MOST INTERESTING DISCOVERY IN THE LATEST PHOTOGRAPHS IS WHAT APPEARS TO BE FROZEN LIQUID ON THE FLOOR OF PERPETUALLY SHADED CRATERS NEAR THE POLES. GEOLOGIST HAROLD MASURSKY OF THE U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY'S MOON-MAPPING TEAM SAID THAT IT WASN'T POSSIBLE TO DETERMINE IF THE LIQUID COULD BE USEFUL UNTIL MEN EXPLORED THE MOON.
