The legacy of the United States Apollo programme is rich in outstanding achievements but none more so than the first fully equipped lunar landing mission.
Apollo 15 was the first moon landing to venture into the treacherous terrain of a lunar mountain range. After a perfect pin-point landing astronauts David Scott and James Irwin explored the mysterious Hadley Rille with the benefit of their electric lunar rover.
Scott and Irwin had undergone extensive training in the science of geology and were to find the oldest rock ever to be brought back from the moon. The so-called "Genesis" rock would answer many of man's age-old questions about the origins of the moon.
While the two men drove their remarkable vehicle through the lunar foothills their companion Alfred Worden spent several days running a battery of experiments from low lunar orbit, mapping the lunar terrain in unprecedented detail.
In Apollo 15 - The NASA Mission Reports the amazing fourth lunar landing is explained in great depth with documents rerely seen by the public.
Exclusive Foreword by Apollo 15 Commander David Scott
A Bonus CD-ROM is included inside the back cover which features: Rarely seen EVA television footage from Apollo 15, 2500 still images, 17 QTVR interactive panoramas of the landing site and more.
