Astronaut Eugene Cernan Drives the Lunar Roving Vehicle

May 9, 2003
Astronaut Eugene A. Cernan, Apollo 17 mission commander, makes a short checkout of the Lunar Roving Vehicle during the early part of the first Apollo 17 extravehicular activity (EVA-1) at the Taurus-Littrow landing site. The Lunar Module is in the background. This view of the "stripped down" Rover is prior to loadup. This photograph was taken by Scientist-Astronaut Harrison H. Schmitt, lunar module pilot.
