Commander Dave Scott, command module pilot Al Worden, and lunar module pilot Jim Irwin landed at Hadley Rill and undertook three scientific expeditions on the lunar surface, exploring the craters and identifying Genesis Rock. They spent days in orbit carrying out scientific experiments and making observations. The film features footage of such activities as the standup spacewalk, traversing lunar soil via the lunar rover, the launching of a subsatellite, and the plaque the astronauts left on the moon that is dedicated to the fourteen astronauts and cosmonauts who had died in the pursuit of space exploration

The time of Apollo( Visual )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time has shown the march of scientific progress as humans slowly reached through new barriers and even greater heights to understand the world around them. The footsteps of progress down time's corridor quickened as people reached outside the world they had come to understand to a new horizon - space. "Time of Apollo," is a look back at 1968 through the eyes of 1975 in an effort to prove the success of the space program. It highlights such momentous occasions as President Kennedy's impassioned speech to reach the moon, Apollo 8's history making flight, manned by James Lovell, Frank Borman, and William Anders, and their accompanying live broadcast on Christmas Eve. Apollo 8's historic mission would pave the way for Apollo 11, the first mission where man walked on the moon; another barrier broken in the name of science and exploration
