Apollo 16 – Exploring the Highlands of the Moon with Jerry Stone
Apollo 16 was the second of the “J” missions, where the scientific content was increased by both the extended time on the Moon and the inclusion of a Lunar Roving Vehicle, which allowed the astronauts to cover a much greater area of the lunar surface.
Apollo 16 was also the only mission to put a telescope on the Moon – one designed to operate in ultra-violet light – and it also included the Lunar Olympics and a Grand Prix!
This is the penultimate presentation in Jerry’s series celebrating the 50th anniversary of each of the Apollo flights..
Jerry Stone is a Freelance Space Presenter, and a recognised expert on the Apollo programme.
Jerry, a prolific author, will have with him copies of his latest book, “Find Out – Space Travel” at £6 each, which he will be happy to sign.
