NASA - Apollo 16 Mission patch.
Sep 24, 2022
Astronaut John W. Young, commander of the Apollo 16 lunar landing mission, leaps from the Moon's surface as he salutes the United States flag at the Descartes landing site during the first Apollo 16 spacewalk. Astronaut Charles M. Duke Jr., lunar module pilot, took this picture on April 21, 1972. The Lunar Module Orion is on the left and beside it is the Lunar Roving Vehicle. Behind Young, in the shadow of Orion, is the Far Ultraviolet Camera/Spectrograph.
Young and Duke conducted three surface excursions totaling more than 20 hours, using the Lunar Roving Vehicle for transportation. They deployed an experiment package, collected 209 pounds of rock and soil samples, and set up the first telescope on the Moon.
