The Nasa Mission Reports
by Robert Godwin
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. After a perfect pin-point 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.
In Apollo 15 - The NASA Mission Reports the remarkable fourth lunar landing is explained in great detail with documents rarely seen
by the public.
