- A High-Resolution scan of the LPI's AS16-121-19445 is needed to detect and to explore the region of von Békésy near the lower margin of that frame, very near the sunset terminator.
- We could ask the question if the region of von Békésy (and nearby Compton) is perhaps the moon's most northward farside region ever photographed on Apollo's color Hasselblad film.
- We could ask the same sort of questions while investigating Apollo 16's Fairchild-camera photographs made during Trans Earth Coast (TEC).
Frame AS16-M-3021 shows von Békésy near the lower part of the frame (very near the terminator).
