NASA

1971: Apollo 15 launches from Kennedy Space Center bound for the moon. The mission was the first of what were termed "J missions," long duration stays on the moon with a greater focus on science than had been possible on previous missions. It was also the first mission where the Lunar Roving Vehicle, seen here with astronaut Jim Irwin, was used.
