From its July 26, 1971 liftoff to its August 7 splashdown, Apollo XV was NASA’s fourth successful human lunar landing mission. It was the only landing in a mountainous region, and the first to have the Lunar Roving Vehicle, an electric car, aboard. Astronauts Scott and Irwin logged over seventeen miles and collected 170 pounds of moon rocks and dust. Mr. Newcomer will review this landmark mission, using NASA photographs from both training and flight, in celebration of its 50th anniversary. Cosponsored by St. Louis Astronomical Society and NASA MO Space Grant Consortium at Washington U.
