The earliest images of the Moon were better than we thought

Fifty years ago, 5 unmanned lunar orbiters circled the moon, taking extremely high resolution photos of the surface. They were trying to find the perfect landing site for the Apollo missions. After their use, the images were locked away from the public until after the bulk of the moon landings, for they would have revealed the superior technology of the USA’s spy satellite cameras.
