Description:

Apollo 17, Harrison Schmitt Mounting the Lunar Roving Vehicle, December 1972. Color 8 x 10 in. photograph, red lettering on recto: AS17-134-20454, "A Kodak Paper" on verso; according to Schmitt, "Mounting the Rover when spacesuited takes a bit of doing. You stand facing forward by the side of the vehicle, jump upward about two feet with a simultaneous sideways push, kick your feet out ahead, and wait as you slowly settle into the seat, ideally in the correct one. Here I'm completing the job."
