Landing at Hadley

Journal Text: 104:39:32   MPEG Video Clip: (Time-lapse; 1 minute 39 seconds; 3.0MB) by Mick Hyde.

Silent, time-lapse landing film, from pitchover, followed by a yaw to the left. Hadley Rille with Hill 305 beyond are in view after pitchover. The film continues to touchdown until after the dust clears, revealing the surface.

Journal Text: 104:39:32   RealVideo Clip: (1 minute 49 seconds; not realtime) by Ken Glover.

Clip from the NASA film Apollo 15: In the Mountains of the Moon. Opens with Jim Irwin announcing "P64!" at 7,000 feet. A film narrator speaks briefly, followed by the descent to the surface and post-landing reaction shots of mission control.

Journal Text: 104:40:06   MPEG Video Clip: (2 minutes 37 seconds; 20.3 MB) by Kipp Teague.

Landing clip with good quality video and audio, from 104:40:06 at 3,000 feet to 104:42:40, just after touchdown. Voice of Jim Irwin calling out the numbers during descent, with occasional remarks from Dave Scott and capcom Ed Mitchell. Hill 305 is visible in the background until 2,000 feet and Hadley Rille is visible until 400 feet altitude. Slight ground dust appears at 120 feet and really thickens below 60 feet. After Irwin announces probe contact at 8 feet, the lunar module shadow on the surface shows the spacecraft dropping suddenly at engine shutdown then tilting backwards on contact with the uneven ground. The dust clears almost instantly and applause is heard from Houston after Scott announces the landing.

Preparations for EVA-1

Journal Text: 119:52:36   2 minutes 45 seconds   (RealVideo Clip: 0.7 Mb or MPG clip: 25 Mb ). Both clips by Ken Glover.

First television pictures of the EVA: view of the ladder and the slanting lunar surface. Judging from the slant, the camera is tilted about 45 degrees to the left causing the ground to fill diagonally the bottom left corner of the picture. The astronauts can be heard discussing the jettison bag and lunar equipment conveyor (LEC). Scott has not yet descended into camera view.


Deploying the Lunar Roving Vehicle

Journal Text: 119:55:42  2 minutes 47 seconds   ( RealVideo Clip: 0.7 Mb or MPG Video Clip: 25 Mb ). Both clips by Ken Glover.

Scott emerges into view, feet first, descending the ladder. On the footpad, he looks about then takes his first steps on the surface, exploring his mobility. He reports on the condition of the lunar module and accounts for its tilt by describing the uneven ground on which they've landed. CapCom Joe Allen remarks on the extraordinary quality of the television picture.

Journal Text: 120:02:47   QuickTime Video Clip: (59 seconds; 4.1MB).

Jim Irwin's descent to the surface, from 120:02:47 to 120:03:42. With Scott in the background, Irwin descends the ladder, almost falling down as he reaches the footpad. Because the lunar module is tilting backwards, the pad is off the ground and is unstable, swivelling under Irwin. He can be seen swinging off-camera to the left of the picture, holding the ladder for support with his right hand to prevent a fall. Just before that stumble, his face is partly visible and his Snoopy helmet is quite clear inside his helmet. On the surface, Scott tells him to pull his visor down then deploys the antenna on top of Irwin's life support system. They discuss the "glass ball" rock on the ground and how black their boots have become already from the dust. Scott goes off-camera to the right to get the television camera tripod, then Irwin also goes off to the right to collect the contingency sample.

High-speed, time-lapse video of the rover deployment. Irwin climbs up to the porch to pull a lanyard to release the rover. It tilts a little away from the lunar module. He descends to the surface and the astronauts release the car onto the ground by pulling on other lanyards. They set up the rover then lift and turn it to its left, pointing east behind the lunar module. Scott climbs on and drives away behind the lunar module, going off-camera to the left, or north.

The rover camera pans clockwise across the ground showing a variety of rocks and a mountain slope in the background. It tilts to reveal background hills. The rille appears as the camera continues right and finally it comes to rest on the rover, showing the right rear wheel guard and Irwin's seat. Off-camera throughout, the astronauts can be heard discussing their sampling experiences.

Irwin scoops a couple of soil fillet samples around the Station 2 boulder, a three-foot rock with a substantial fillet on the downslope side, and with the gnomon at its right in this rover camera view. The camera zooms back to show Jim pouring his scooped sample into the collection bag held by Dave. The camera then pans right to examine a crater in the foreground, perhaps 7-8 feet diameter and 3 feet deep.

The rover camera is used to examine the rille in this clockwise pan. While the camera looks northwest along the length of the rille, parts of the western slope are in shadow but much of the wall and many boulders can be seen; the east wall is well-lit; the floor is also clearly visible. The camera is used to the limit here to explore, including panning, tilting, and zooming. The camera zooms out and continues its pan to the right, finding the bend in the rille where it curves west in the foreground, and the western face of Mount Hadley in shadow in the background. Meanwhile, the astronauts are collecting soil off-camera beside the Station 2 boulder and are preparing to sample the rock itself.

Dave photographs and watches Jim hammer in a double core sample tube. Jim begins by pushing the core in manually then applies 35 hammer blows prompting capcom Joe Allen to call him an “iron man”. The pictures brightens and improves after 45 seconds when the camera iris is opened up. Jim extracts the core without difficulty.

Dave decides to play with low gravity, but it plays with him. Holding the heat flow experiment (HFE) dust cover in his left hand, he bends sharply to his right and uses the universal handling tool to pick up the HFE pallet. Moving a few feet to the right and transferring the pallet to his left hand, he invites capcom Joe Allen to watch as he performs “a demonstration”. He twists and flings the pallet and dust cover into the air but, while they fly off-camera, he loses his balance and falls onto his right arm, extended to the ground to break his fall. The recovery is more spectacular than the fall. His twisting momentum carries him round and he manages to bounce back up from his extended arm off the ground, twisting up to a standing position. The camera pans left and finds Jim at the rover.

The astronauts are working on a very steep slope. Irwin tries to scoop up a rock left-handed but it falls as he raises the scoop, so he switches to his right hand. Scott plants his tongs in the ground and uses both hands to receive the rock as Irwin lifts it with his scoop. Scott lifts the rock above his chest-mounted camera for a good look and goes on to describe it. Meanwhile, Irwin pulls off a sample bag from his camera and plants his scoop in the ground. Dave decides, however, that it wouldn't fit in the bag Jim has readied so he puts it in the sample collection bag at the side of Jim's PLSS instead.

Dave picks up five rock samples with his tongs while Jim plants his scoop in the ground and readies a sample bag for the rocks. After Jim places the rock bag in the sample collection bag on the side of Dave's PLSS, Dave borrows the hammer from Jim's PLSS and smashes open a large rock on the ground, then returns the hammer to Jim's PLSS.

Jim scoops the ground beside the gnomon seventeen times to dig a trench while Dave looks on. The sample bags attached to Jim's camera are clearly seen swinging while he works. Dave positions himself to photograph the trench by stepping into the crater below it, but loses his footing and falls in the steep, soft slope. Jim helps him to stand and to climb from the crater.

While Jim returns his final trench soil sample to the rover, Dave drills a deep core sample about half-way in. He realizes he is still wearing his chest-mounted camera so he stops drilling and returns it to the rover. While Jim collects the penetrometer, Dave returns to the deep core sample and finishes drilling all the way in. When his auxiliary water warning tone is heard, sounding like a ringing cell phone, Dave stops to switch over to Aux Water.

Jim climbs the lunar module ladder and enters the hatch. Dave on the surface appears at bottom right of the picture after 22 seconds just as the rover television camera iris is opened to provide a brighter view of Jim. The MESA looks like an untidy drop zone, with the blankets looking like bunched parachutes. The lunar equipment conveyor is seen waving as Dave gets ready to attach a sample return container. (Shortly afterwards, he decides to carry the SRC up the ladder himself.)

Dave is holding the deep core sample tube horizontally on the geopallet at the back of the rover while he and Jim struggle to move the treadle by twisting it, to no avail. His voice heavy with dismay, he enlists Jim's help instead by asking him to twist the drill off the end of the stem. When it finally comes off, a little of the hard-won soil is seen spilling from the stem tube as Jim moves to place the drill on the rover. Dave removes his chest-mounted camera and moves out of view as he goes to place it on his seat.

Exploring the rille. The rover camera scene opens with closeup views of boulders on the far rille wall, the camera panning left and stopping repeatedly. Off-camera, Dave takes 500-mm pictures of the rille and describes a crater in the far wall. The camera zooms out and pans right to find Jim carrying a scoop and looking at the surface. He walks to the right to join Dave while the camera follows. Dave points out talus features on the far rille slope as the camera finds them both looking off to the left at the rille. Dave's 500-mm camera is seen clearly.

While Jim is center-frame preparing to rake, Dave backs off-camera to the left to photograph the activity. The rover camera zooms in to catch good views of soil spilling from the rake. Jim requests a sample bag and Dave comes forward with one, kicking soil into Jim's sampling area on his approach. Jim pours the rake samples into the bag held by Dave, who offers a running commentary on the samples tilting into the bag in his hand. Jim rakes again and pours his booty into Dave's collection bag once more, while Dave speculates that it might be a good spot to dig a trench because of the different soil layer colours revealed when he kicks up the topsoil.

Jim, at right, positions the core tube on the ground and Dave takes his picture while he pushes it in. Jim hammers right-handed 24 times before switching to his left hand for another 20 swings, missing a couple of times at the beginning. Occasional bumps on the soundtrack sound uncannily like hammer impacts, especially sounds at the 24-second mark, and three sounds at 36 seconds which coincide with impacts of the hammer on the T-shaped extension handle. The rover camera zooms in for a closeup of the final strokes.

Ascent of the Falcon: view from the rover's television camera. Ignition occurs at the 54-second mark and the Falcon climbs off-camera within three seconds just as "Air Force Song" can be heard from the onboard tape recorder. Spacecraft foil and surface debris fly in all directions. The dust stirred up by the engine clears remarkably quickly, within about 12 seconds. In this first-ever exterior television record of a lunar lift-off, the planned attempt to follow the climbing ascent stage was omitted owing to the camera's tilting difficulties (the camera problem is discussed in Return to the LM after 166:55:05).

Ascent of the Falcon: silent 16-mm view from behind the lunar module pilot's window. Strips of foil fly sideways at ignition. The spacecraft pitches unevenly during ascent, revealing its own shadow and then the descent stage on the ground, briefly, at the 7-second mark. Astronaut- and rover-disturbed, darker soil and the ALSEP area can also be picked out. The boulder-littered wall of Hadley Rille comes into view at 23 seconds. The Falcon yaws right and flies along the rille like a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon.
