APOLLO 16

During their time on the Moon, John Young and Charlie Duke performed three Moonwalks, where they explored the Moon's surface both on foot and using the Lunar Roving Vehicle (Lunar Rover).  Meanwhile, Ken Mattingly remained in lunar orbit, performing experiments and taking photos of the Moon's surface.
