|This is a close-up
view of the surface containing small lunar rocks, some of which are cracked.
The Apollo 11 astronauts were equipped with a "walking stick" containing
a close-up stereo flash camera that could photograph an area of the surface
some 3x3 inches square (8x8 cm sq.). The Moon's surface has been heavily
pitted with micrometeorite craters and covered by a layer of dust and debris
from surrounding craters. The soils were found to be very powdery and contained
some small shiny spherical particles.
