Apollo 15


On July 26, 1971, I was almost eight years of age, and like most Americans I watched a Saturn V rocket launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying the three Apollo 15 astronauts, David Scott, James Irwin and Alfred Worden, to the moon.  It was the fourth Apollo moon landing, and the first time astronauts used the Lunar Roving Machine, popularly known as the "Moon Buggy."
