    Astronaut Charles M. Duke Jr., Apollo 16 Lunar Module pilot, is photographed collecting lunar samples at Station No. 1 during the mission's first extravehicular activity at the Descartes landing site. This picture, looking eastward, was taken by Commander John W. Young. Duke is standing at the rim of Plum crater, which is 40 meters (131 feet) in diameter and 10 meters (about 33 feet) deep. The lunar rover can be seen in the background.

    Apollo 16, the fifth mission in which humans walked on the lunar surface, launched 35 years ago today on April 16, 1972.

      thanks for posting this!

      Here's a bizarre connection: The glass on the helmet was tested for architectural use on the Richard and Dion Neutra VDL Research House II!

      I like to watch the moon. I would be interested in the landing location on a map of the moon.

      I fail to see what was so exciting about watching a televised special effects bonanza put on at a studio just outside of Las Vegas. Oh yeah, and they tell us now thirty-odd years later that they "lost" the high definition footage they shot of the whole thing. Okay, so we're supposed to believe they made it to the moon and made millions of mechanical and electrical devices work in perfect harmony to achieve that end, yet they're brainless enough loose the film. Sorry people, it just don't add up.

      Hi,
      could someone tell me why the shadow of the astronaut and the shadow of the rock below the rover are falling in different directions. There seems to be a light source very close by and just above the image. Is this normal?

    12. Golden Striker 71 months ago | reply

      Sure, I'll tell you: Because as I said, the whole damn thing was a sham and never happened. Our government is way, way too incompetent to do anything as brilliant as working in a concise, well coordinated effort to put a man on the moon, so at least the first landing was faked at a supposedly secret studio out in the Nevada desert not too far from Vegas. The astronauts who were supposed to be on that flight were spotted the day before having drinks at a casino by several people.

      Everything you are seeing in that picture is on a sound stage somewhere.

      Here's another one for ya: whey were pictures of the dark side of the moon, once we had them, classified for months before being released? Some say we did go to the moon, but in the fifties, and found life there, but not even the president was informed of this. Fearing humanity could not handle the news of life on the moon, they then faked the moon landings. That's the theory anyhow. Those who propound it also say we've been on Mars since the seventies.

      I think you can still get a print made directly from the actual original film if you contact the national archives. That would be something to have.
