Apollo 17
Close-up of lunar roving vehicle at Apollo 17 Taurus-Littrow landing site

A close-up view of the lunar roving vehicle (LRV) at the Apollo 17 Taurus-Littrow landing site extravehicular activity (EVA). Note the makeshift repair arrangement on the right rear fender of the LRV. During EVA-1 a hammer got underneath the fender and a part of it was knocked off. Following a suggestion from Astronaut John W. Young in Mission Control Center at Houston, the crewmen reapired the fender early in EVA-2 using lunar maps and clamps from the optical alignment telescope lamp. Schmitt is seated in the rover. Cernan took this picture.
