Apollo 17 crewmembers examine rock specimens during geological field trip

Two members of the prime crew of the Apollo 17 lunar landing mission examine rock specimens during lunar surface extravehicular activity simulation training on a geological field trip to the Pancake Range area of south-central Nevada. They are Astronaut Eugene A. Cernan (right), commander; and Scientist-Astronaut Harrison H. Schmitt, lunar module pilot. They are standing on the rim of Lunar Crater, which is about 600 ft. deep and five-eighths of a mile in diameter. It is a volcanic crater.
