Apollo 16
Astronauts Young and Duke begin simulated lunar surface traverse at KSC

Astronauts John W. Young, right, Apollo 16 commander, and Charles M. Duke Jr., lunar module pilot, prepare to begin a simulated traverse in a training area at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC). Among the experiments to fly on Apollo 16 is the soil mechanics (S-200) experiment, or self-recording penetrometer, a model of which is held here by Duke. A training model of the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) is parked between the two crewmen (30694); Young and Duke maneuver a training version of the LRV about a field at KSC simulated to represent the lunar surface (30695).
