Caption: Apollo lunar rover, artwork. Two Apollo astronauts in a lunar rover, exploring on the Moon. Their lunar landing module is at upper left. 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.
