It's been ages since I'd seen it, so when I saw the following photograph again a few minutes ago, I was thrilled all over again that an astronaut was able to pose proudly with a robotic precursor that had explored the same extraterrestrial surface years before!

It's a photo of Astronaut Charles Conrad posing next to the Surveyor 3, with the LM in the background.

Perhaps, soon, another human-robot family photo will be added to our album -- courtesy of the CEV!

Indeed, and a most successful individual, from all indications.
