    Apollo 16 also took advantage of having a lunar rover, as Commander John Young and Lunar Module Pilot Charles Duke drove more than 16 miles over three moonwalks, collecting pounds of samples. Problems forced mission controllers to cut the flight short by a day, but the return trip included a spacewalk by Command Module Pilot Ken Mattingly.   Apollo 15 followed the historic Apollo 11 Moon landing after two years, in July By this point, NASA’s Apollo astronauts have already performed six flybys and orbits of the Moon.

      A lab technician studies a Japanese quail that was exposed to lunar samples collected by the Apollo 11 mission. (Image credit: NASA) First, NASA chose the species it would use.   On J the rocket delivering Luna 15 roared toward the moon three days ahead of the Apollo 11 mission. The race had begun. “I’m sure that the original plan was to beat Apollo 11 back to.

    The legacy of the Apollo programme is rich in outstanding discoveries and accomplishments but none more so than the first fully equipped lunar landing mission. Apollo 15 was the first moon-landing to venture into the treacherous terrain of a lunar mountain range. This book explores the Apollo 15 . Each panorama spans a full double page spread, and includes almost every panorama captured on the lunar surface, as well as pans captured from the LM Windows and the stand up EVA on Apollo Each panorama has a detailed description by the author plus most also have exclusive comments from the Apollo Moonwalkers who were actually there.

In this book, detailed descriptions are given on the design of the lunar sampling tools, the Modular Experiment Transporter used on Apo and the specific areas of the Lunar Rover vehicle used for the Apo 16, and 17 missions, which carried the sampling tools, bags, and other related equipment used in sample collection.1/5(1).

Extremely large, vintage Apollo 15 landing site chart—one of the largest maps produced for the Apollo program—showing the traverses of the first lunar rover, accompanied by a vintage lunar orbit chart, both inscribed by mission commander David Scott.

According to the Apollo 15 Lunar Sample Information Catalog (), a l-cm xenolith occurs on one face. A few percent yellow-green olivine phenocrysts are visible. The basalt is medium gray, subrounded (Fig. 1), and tough. The sample was barely in the soil, lacking fillets or. NASA Astromaterials Curation, an integral part of any sample return mission, comprises preparation and allocation of samples for research and education, initial characterization of new samples, and secure storage for the benefit of future generations.

Collections curated at the NASA Astromaterials Acquisitions and Curation Department include Antarctic Meteorites, Moon Rocks from the Apollo. The lunar sample building at Johnson Space Center is the chief repository for the Apollo samples. The lunar sample laboratory is where pristine lunar samples are prepared for shipment to scientists and educators.

Nearly samples are distributed each year for research and teaching projects. Astronaut collecting lunar soil sample. Closeup view of Apollo 15 Lunar sample ,0. Apollo 15 was the ninth crewed mission in the United States' Apollo program, and the fourth to land on the was the first J mission, with a longer stay on the Moon and a greater focus on science than earlier landings.

Apollo 15 saw the first use of the Lunar Roving Vehicle. The mission began on Jand ended on August 7, the lunar surface exploration taking place between Rocket: Saturn V AS In this book, detailed descriptions are given on the design of the lunar sampling tools, the Modular Experiment Transporter used on Apo and the specific areas of the Lunar Rover vehicle used for the Apo 16, and 17 missions, which carried the sampling tools, bags, and other related equipment used in sample collection.

Samples returned from the Apollo 15 site consist of mare basalts and breccias with a variety of premare igneous rocks. The mare basalts are from at least two different lava flows. The bulk chemical compositions and textures of these rocks confirm the previous conclusion that the lunar maria consist of a series of extrusive volcanic rocks that are rich in iron and poor in sodium.

Scott and Irwin landed at UTC on 30 Julyand stayed on the lunar surface for 2 days and 18 hours, during which they performed three Extra-Vehicular Activities (EVA) totaling hours and collecting 77 kg of lunar samples.

Apollo 15 was the first of the J Class Missions, which included the new Metric and Panoramic orbital camera. Lunar Sample Overview. When viewed through a telescope, the Apollo 12 landing site has fewer craters and a slightly redder color than the Apollo 11 landing site.

It was thought that these characteristics indicated that the rocks at the Apollo 12 landing site were both younger and different in chemical composition than the rocks at the Apollo 11 landing site.
