I'm not sure a table is really appropriate here. I'd prefer to put each mission as a subheading, like:
- Launched May 30, 1966; landed June 2, 1966
- Weight at landing: 596 pounds (how about something metric?)
A total 11,237 images were transmitted to Earth.
The successful soft landing (first ever by the U.S. on an extraterrestrial body) was in the Ocean of Storms?. The spacecraft found a layer of about one inch of dust around itself.

- Seems reasonable, especially after I added that image. I just like tables is all, and there was a request for one, so I dove in. :) Bryan Derksen
- Heh. :) That request was made before all the text descriptions made their way in, though. I'll change 'it... --Brion
Stable version now
- The protocol 'does not exist yet. For any action to be taken under a proposal, it first has to achieve consensus support, which judging from the current discussions it certainly has not done. WP:CONSENSUS, WP:PROT, WP:5P all individually (never mind collectively) trump a still-under-discussion-but-largely-rejected proposal. Cynical 20:29, 30 July 2006 (UTC)
Pictures in subarticles
All of the pages for the specific Surveyor missions have the "generic" image in their infoboxes. Since the generic picture isn't the actual probe being discussed, shouldn't we look for a proper image, or just leave that part empty? (DrZarkov 03:14, 23 January 2007 (UTC))
Space Race context
Check out this quote from Chapter 1 of "Destination Moon":
In the wake of early Soviet space achievements the American space program became enveloped in far-reaching political competition with the Soviet Union. In this atmosphere, the United States counted heavily on the Ranger and Surveyor programs, pioneering endeavors in the application of new technology, to achieve an urgently needed "first" in space.
Given that (and numerous other easily findable and verifiable sources), should some mention be made of the Soviet program that paralleled Surveyor? Sdsds 06:32, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
