Lunar surface during Apollo 15, 1971. US astronaut Jim Irwin (1930-1961) took this panoramic view when he and fellow US astronaut Dave Scott (born 1932, far right, with the lunar rover) arrived at Station 10 during one of their extravehicular activities (EVAs) on the lunar surface. This image was obtained during EVA 3 which took place on 2 August 1971 and lasted for over four hours. Here, the astronauts are at the edge of Hadley Rille (also known as Rima Hadley). Apollo 15 saw the first use of the lunar rover, or Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV).
