40 Years Ago – Apollo 17 Astronauts Continue Exploration

Apollo 17 tracks from orbit
A few years ago, a satellite orbiting the Moon viewed the landing area of Apollo 17. (NASA)
On this day in history, December 13, 1972, the Apollo 17 astronauts drove around the Moon on the rover, taking more samples and storing them in the lander. Then, they parked the rover so it could “watch” the liftoff on December 14th.

This photo shows that 40 years later you can still see the tracks of the rover and the location of the descent portion of the lander.

Tomorrow, the video of the liftoff.
