    12 Amazing Vintage Photos of The Moon and Apollo Missions

    Apollo 15 embarked in July of 1971 and was the fourth mission in which humans walked on the moon. Two astronauts, Commander David R. Scott and LM (Lunar Module) pilot James B. Irwin, were shown during their 4 days on the lunar surface. Shortly thereafter, the Apollo 17 mission landed, in December of 1972, and would be the sixth and final mission in which humans would roam the moon.

    The photographs from the 17th mission include: Commander Eugene A. Cernan, LM pilot Harrison H. Schmitt and CM (Command Module) pilot Ronald E. Evans. Some activities depicted in the collection of twelve images include: the retrieval of a film canister on the outside of a spacecraft, the preparation of a LRV (Lunar Roving Vehicle), collection of lunar samples and, of course, the overall exploration of the moon’s surface.

    the moon and outer space are pretty amazing, but nothing really boggles the mind like @LawyerLarry see he is a intergaltic being @ClintDagger as and to reach out to space to find worthy adversaries for Larry inc. I like to think of @MrPPV and @tradioguy69 as mordern day astronauts. @EDDIEVRULZ was telling me that the greatness that is Larry inc. cant be contained to this world alone.

    It's almost hard to believe that it's been so long since the manned lunar explorations. And when you think that this was a time when there were no such things as home computers, cell phones, ipads, even pocket calculators were a novelty... It makes the accomplishment all the more extraordinary.
    With the rapid advances in technology over the last 40 plus years, you would think that such missions would be much easier to execute and be more commonplace today, yet it hasn't happened. Over the years budget cuts at NASA have curtailed possible progress, as well as public opinion hasn't been exactly favorable towards expenditures with regards to space exploration, despite the obvious benefits that come from the discovery and implementation of new technologies.
    Man I was still in high school when the last astronaut left boot prints on the moon... and that was a hell of a LONG time ago in my life...

    Always refreshing to see a guy that doesn't know when to shut up, doesn't know how to shut up, get cracked in the jaw.

    It was the moon landings that made those things possible. The guidance computer (which failed on Apollo 11's descent due to overload) had 2k RAM and less than 40k ROM and operated at 2 MHz. Think about how much more powerful you phone is. The ROM memory was and ancient "core rope memory"

    I'm usually NOT a conspiracy theorist, but I believe the moon landing was faked
