The Best Of Our Knowledge #1608 "Road Trips On The Moon"

When Apollo 11 landing on the moon they indeed stepped where no man has gone before. But once they got there, they didn’t go far.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll learn about the development of the lunar rover, and how that opened up the later Apollo missions with lunar road trips.

Watch a great video of the Apollo 15 astronauts driving on the moon HERE.
