This week in 1971, Apollo 15 became the first mission to use the Lunar Roving Vehicle. The LRV was a lightweight, electric vehicle designed to operate in the low-gravity vacuum of the Moon. It was capable of traversing the lunar surface, allowing Apollo astronauts to extend the range of their extravehicular activities. Here, the LRV is photographed alone against the desolate lunar background following the third Apollo 15 EVA. This July, in a series of special events, NASA is marking the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Program — the historic effort that sent the first U.S. astronauts into orbit around the Moon in 1968, and landed a dozen astronauts on the lunar surface between 1969 and 1972.

1971年的这个星期,阿波罗15号成为第一个使用月球漫游车的任务。LRV是一种轻型电动汽车,设计用于在月球的低重力真空环境中工作。它能够穿越月球表面,使阿波罗号宇航员能够扩大他们的舱外活动范围。在第三次阿波罗15号舱外活动后,月球漫游车独自在荒凉的月球背景下拍摄。今年7月,在一系列特别活动中,美国国家航空和宇宙航行局(NASA)将纪念阿波罗计划(Apollo Program) 50周年。1968年,阿波罗计划将美国第一批宇航员送入绕月轨道,1969年至1972年,十多名宇航员登上月球表面。欲了解更多图片,并连接到NASA的非凡历史,请访问马歇尔历史项目的网页。(NASA)
