The missions after Apollo 11, Apollo 12 - 17, conducted increasingly sophisticated studies of the Moon, yielding new scientific insights into the evolution of our celestial neighbor. Beginning with Apollo 15, astronauts conducted their explorations with the aid of a Moon car - a Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) - that allowed them to travel and work miles away from their Lunar Module. The LRV carried two astronauts along with their life-support systems, scientific equipment, and lunar samples on the airless, low gravity surface of the Moon. It had a range of about 92 kilometers (57 miles), allowing astronauts to place instruments and collect samples away from the immediate area of the lunar module. The vehicle had power for up to 78 hours of operation. An LRV also was used during Apollo missions 16 and 17. The three LRVs were driven a total of 88.3 kilometers (54.8 miles). The wheels of the lunar roving vehicles were specially designed to provide support and traction in the soft lunar soil. Astronauts operated the LRV using controls at an instrument panel. The foil-covered television camera was operated by Mission Control in Houston. This allowed ground controllers to monitor the activities of the astronauts and photograph the launch of the lunar module ascent stage. Length: 3.1 m (10 ft 2 in) Width: 1.8 m (6 ft) Weight: On the Earth - 210 kg (462 lb) Maximum Speed: 14 km/h (9 mi/h).
