The Apollo 15 command module “Endeavour” is on display in the Space Gallery at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, Ohio.

Apollo 15 Mission

Apollo 15 began on July 26 and ended on August 7, with the lunar surface exploration taking place between July 30 and August 2. Commander David Scott and Lunar Module Pilot James Irwin landed near Hadley Rille and explored the local area using the rover, allowing them to travel further from the lunar module than had been possible on previous missions. They spent 181.5 hours on the Moon’s surface on extravehicular activity (EVA), and collected 170 pounds (77 kg) of surface material.

At the same time, Command Module Pilot Alfred Worden orbited the Moon, operating the sensors in the scientific instrument module (SIM) bay of the service module. At the end of Apollo 15’s 74th lunar orbit, the engine was fired for the journey home. During the return trip, Worden performed the first spacewalk in deep space.

The mission also saw the collection of the Genesis Rock, thought to be part of the Moon’s early crust, and Scott’s use of a hammer and a feather to validate Galileo’s theory that when there is no air resistance, objects fall at the same rate due to gravity regardless of their mass.

The Apollo 15 mission splashed down safely on August 7 despite the loss of one of its three parachutes.
