An engineer wearing an astronaut type suit is held in horizontal position by wires to simulate weightlessness in Pasadena, California July 24, 1966 as he demonstrates a battery powered drill designed to drill a core sample from the moon’s surface when American astronauts reach it later in this decade. Scientists have determined that Surveyor I bounced two or three inches when it touched down. The craft’s footpads dug into the soil about an inch. Use of the drill by Apollo astronauts will permit an analysis of the moon surface as deep as 10 feet. (AP Photo)
