Apollo 15’s 50th anniversary Remastered images Apollo-15-patch-Spaceboosters

New images released to Fox News depict the Apollo 15 moon landing in remarkable detail 50 years later.

The pictures, remastered by “Apollo Remastered” author Andy Saunders, show the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) as it was driven by astronauts Commander David Scott and Lunar Module Pilot Jim Irwin on the moon’s surface for the first time.
Scott and Irwin landed the lunar module Falcon on July 30, 1971, the mission had launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida four days prior and entered orbit on July 29.
Irwin and Scott then separated the Falcon from fellow astronaut Alfred Worden, who remained in orbit aboard the Endeavour Command Module.

Scott and Irwin touched down at the Hadley-Apennine site and conducted four spacewalks and three excursions using the LRV, for a combined total of 19 hours and 17.5 miles.
The pair collected 170 pounds of lunar material, including rock and soil samples, while Worden also took photos and conducted an expanded set of observations from above.

Some 57 hours later – after sleeping on the moon relatively undisturbed, save for a potential oxygen leak – Scott and Irwin prepared to rejoin Worden.
On Aug. 2, the Falcon lifted off from the moon – seen on Earth the first time via an LRV television camera – and the spacecraft docked with Endeavour as the module began its 50th lunar orbit.

On Aug. 5, Worden became the first human to carry out a deep space EVA (extravehicular activity), exiting the spacecraft, climbing toward the rear of the service module and retrieving film cassettes from its cameras, and returning in less than 20 minutes.
At 4:46 p.m. ET on Aug. 7, Apollo 15 splashed down into the Pacific Ocean after a more than 12-day mission.

The crew was retrieved from the waters north of Honolulu by the USS Okinawa.
Apollo 15 set several records for crewed spaceflight, including the heaviest payload in a lunar orbit, maximum radial distance traveled on the moon away from the spacecraft, the most lunar surface EVAs and longest duration for lunar surface EVAs, the longest time in lunar orbit, the longest crewed lunar mission, the longest Apollo mission, the first deep space and operational EVA and the first first satellite placed into lunar orbit by a crewed spacecraft.
While many Americans remember Apollo 11 – the first spaceflight that landed humans on the moon – and the almost fatal Apollo 13 mission, Apollo 15 and the LRV remain historic symbols of the U.S. space program’s lunar program.
Saunders’ photos – including frames shot with a Hasselblad camera – have been stitched into panoramas and include both images taken on the lunar surface and from the Endeavour, which are highlighted in a YouTube video.
In addition to moonscape shots, Saunders has remastered pictures of the first tracks made by the LRV, the setup of the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP) and a photo of Irwin saluting the American flag.
