Apollo 16 lunar rover, artwork
Apollo 16 lunar rover. Artwork of the US astronaut John Watts Young (born 1930) driving a lunar rover on a performance test run on the Moon's surface. During this mission, Young achieved a lunar wheeled vehicle speed record of 18 kilometres per hour. Apollo 16 landed two astronauts in the Descartes Highlands for just under three days, from 21-24 April 1972. The other crew member for the lunar landing module (Orion, upper right) was US astronaut Charles Duke, who filmed this scene. Young and Duke carried out three excursions on the lunar surface, and collected over 90 kilograms of lunar rocks.
