In Apollo 15 - The NASA Mission Reports the remarkable fourth lunar landing is explained in great detail with documents rarely seen by the public. Apollo 15 was the first moon-landing to venture into the treacherous terrain of a lunar mountain range. After a perfect pinpoint landing astronauts David Scott and James Irwin explored the mysterious Hadley Rille with the benefit of their electric lunar rover. Scott and Irwin had undergone extensive training in the science of geology and were to find the oldest rock ever to be brought back from the moon. The so-called "Genesis" rock would answer many of man's age-old questions about the origins of the moon. This book includes a CD-ROM with the entire EVA video footage from Apollo 15 as well as thousands of still images.
