New Apollo 17 Moon Landing HD Photos

The twists and turns of the last tracks left by humans on the moon crisscross the surface in this Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) image of the Apollo 12, 14, and 17 sites released by NASA September 6, 2011.

In the thin lunar soil, the trails made by astronauts on foot can be easily distinguished from the dual tracks left by the lunar roving vehicle, or LRV. Also seen in this image are the descent stage of the Challenger lunar module and the LRV, parked to the east.

The LRV gave the Apollo 17 astronauts, Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt, considerable mobility. As in previous Apollo missions, the astronauts set up the lunar monitoring equipment known as the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP), the details of which varied from mission to mission. To the west of the landing site, the cross-shaped path that the astronauts made as they set up the geophones to monitor seismic activity can be seen.

To the east, more rover tracks can be seen. Cernan made these when he laid out the 35-meter antennas for the Surface Electrical Properties, or SEP, experiment. SEP, a separate investigation from ALSEP, characterized the electrical properties of the lunar soil.

Below the SEP experiment is where the astronauts parked the rover, in a prime spot to shoot video of the liftoff of the Challenger module.

    It's just another way for NASA to make us believe that they went to the moon But one day some one will find the proof that will tell us all they went to the moon but not in an Apollo Saturn five rocket and a command module with 3mm thick walls the van Allen belts would have fried them !! They went to the moon in back engineered craft and then were told to fuck of back to earth !!

    Just Apollo 17? More like 12, 14 AND 17. And of course they're real, they have been all over the news.

    why is a shadow of the text on the moon.looks like the classic black & white film low resolution. zoom at 400% if you have windows 7.smells fishy to me

    How strong does the telescope have to be to see the items left behind?
