APOLLO 15 - Hadley Rille / Apennine Moutains
Apollo 15, Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains , SEVA, 31 July 1971, frames A15-87-11748 to A15-87-11756. This is part of the panorama taken by Dave Scott during the Stand-up EVA. The large mountain is Mount Hadley with St George Crater on its right side. The docking target and VHF antenna are visible on the left side of the LM.
Apollo 15, Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains , 31 July 1971, frames A15-85-11388 to A15-85-11393. Landing site view from the Commander window, the fresh crater on the foreground is a doublet. St. George Crater is in the distance beyond the thruster with an illuminated, subsidiary peak southwest of Hadley Delta in the far distance.
Apollo 15, Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains , EVA 1, 31 July 1971, frames A15-85-11422 to A15-85-11428. Jim Irwin's Station 2 Panorama. On the lefthand side, Dave Scott is getting a pair of tongs off the Rover. Below the 16 mm Data Aquisition Camera, the radiator on the top of the television camera indicates it is still pointed down and aft. Rightward of the LRV is a spectacular view of the rille to the north. Note the fresh-raised-rim crater showing a considerable amount of blocky ejecta around it.
Apollo 15, Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains , EVA 1, 31 July 1971, frames A15-85-11422 to A15-85-11438. Dave Scott at the Station 2 boulder. The crater at his feet was undoubtedly made when the boulder was thrown onto the slope. He has both the gnomon and the tongs in his left hand. A comparison with the previous panorama indicates that, while taking the pan on the sloping surface,Jim Irwin has unintentionally moved downhill.
Apollo 15, Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains , EVA 1, 31 July 1971, frames A15-85-11446 to A15-85-11455. Panoramic view taken by Jim Irwin from the double-core site on the rim of a small crater above the Rover at Station 2. The picture is down-Sun and shows his shadow going down into the crater. Bennett Hill and the rille are in the background, with Hill 305 at the right. Dave Scott is at the Rover and the gnomon is on the ground at his right foot. The gate at the back of the Rover is open. Note that, in order to bend and reach the rover flor, Dave Scott has his left foot out to the side with the knee bent and, also, has his right leg back with the knee bent. By doing this, he is able to lean about 30 degrees off vertical to his right. The TV record shows that he is putting the tongs down on the Rover at this point.
Apollo 15, Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains , EVA 1, 31 July 1971, frames A15-86-11600 and A15-86-11602. Jime Irwin is seen behind the LTV at the end of EVA 1. The white foreground object on the left is the discarded Quad III experiment pallet.
Apollo 15, Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains , EVA 2, 1st August 1971, frames A15-85-11488 to A15-85-11492. Panoramic view of Station 6 taken by Jim Irwin It shows the now-sunlit western face of Mt. Hadley. The lineations visible on the mountain are generally believed to be a lighting effect due to the long shadows cast by small-scale undulations at this very-low sun angle. In the foreground we can see the tracks made by the Rover as Dave Scott and Jim Irwin approached Station 6. Behind the rover is the Swann Range. On the rover we can see the traverse maps attached to the accessory staff on Jim Irwin's side of the console.
Apollo 15, Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains , EVA 2, 1st August 1971, frames A15-85-11658 and A15-85-11659. Dave Scott placed his tongs on top of the Station 6a boulder while he took this picture across the top of the rock. Note that the left-rear wheel of the Rover is off the ground. Jim Irwin is standing at his side of the vehicle, holding on to it. It is a shame that he didn't take a picture of Dave working at the rock.
Apollo 15, Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains , EVA 3, 2 August 1971, frames A15-82-11056 and A15-82-11057. Jim Irwin took a panorama of the the Swann range with Falcon in the foreground before they drove to Station 9 and explore the Hadley Rille.
Apollo 15, Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains , EVA 3, 2 August 1971, frames A15-82-11091 and A15-82-11092. Jim Irwin is at the Rover at the right edge at the CDR's seat. Bennett Hill is in the distance beyond the Rover. The fragments in the foreground are all regolith breccias ejected from the Station 9 crater.
