Scenes from Space #22

These tracks were made by the Apollo 14 crew's two-wheeled Modularized Equipment Transporter (MET) - which the astronauts referred to as the "rickshaw" - which was designed to help the astronauts explore the Moon's surface. It carried lunar handtools, sample containers, spare film and a Lunar Surface Penetrometer. The tracks in the soil show the path of Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell as they explored this lunar landscape.
