United States

Surveyor 7 was launched on 7 January 1968 and landed near the north rim of Tycho crater on 10 January 1968. The landing site for Surveyor 7, specifically chosen for primarily scientific reasons, was far from the lunar maria in the southern highlands in order to enable investigations of materials different from the other Surveyor missions. Surveyor 7 carried a television camera (ultimately returning 21,038 images), an alpha particle backscattering instrument, and a soil mechanics surface sampling device.
