"So it was in May 1966 when Surveyor I landed on the moon three years
before Apollo 11 that the long debate over the the lunar surface dust layer
was finally settled, and NASA officials then knew exactly how much dust
there was on the surface and that it was capable of supporting spacecraft
"Since this is the case, creationists cannot say or imply, as some have,
that most astronomers and scientists expected a deep dust layer. Some of
course did, but it is unfair if creationists only selectively refer to
those few scientists who predicted a deep dust layer and ignore the
majority of scientist swho on equally scientific grounds had predicted only
a thin dust layer." Andrew Snelling and David Rush, " "Moon Dust and the
Age of the Solar System" CEN TEch. J. Vol7:1:2-42, p. 30
"Two further matters need to be also dealt with. First there is the
assertion that NASA built the Apollow lunar lander with large footpads
because they were unsure about the dust and the safety of their spacecraft.
Such a claim is inappropriate given the success of the Surveyor
soft-landings, the Apollo lunar lander having footpads which were
proportionally similar to the relative sizes of the respective spacecraft.
After all, it stands to reason that since the desing of Surveyor spacecraft
worked so well and survived the landing on the lunar surface that the same
basic design should be followed in the Apollo lunar lander. Andrew Snelling
