The lunar rovers were used on the last three Apollo missions (Apollo 15, 16 and 17). Each rover was used three times, once for each day of the three-day stays on the lunar surface. They were driven between 12 and 20 kilometres on each excursion, with the excursions lasting between three and four-and-a-half hours. The route taken was planned to allow the astronauts to walk back to the landing module if the rover failed. The rovers had a video camera and high-gain antenna to transmit images back to Earth.
