moon Hailing the Soviet feat the director of the Jodreli Bank Radio Observatory said the soft landing Thursday already had provided valuable details on the surface of the moon The fact that the

spectacular coud be the landing of a remotely con trolled tractortype vehicle on on orbit of moon the moon This vehicle could move aboul and take detailed pictures of the lunar surface Us movements would be controlled from earth Another possibility in the near future he said was that soft landing vehicles might carry a subsidiary rocket that would be automatically launched from the moons surface

return to earth he added Prof JG Davies atJodreli Bank has Vcompiled a graph showing the rockets apr proach to the moon in Thurs days landing Davies said it in dicated that the rocket was trav eling
