Charles Duke (American, b. 1935)

Charles Duke (American, b. 1935) John Young beyond the rover parked next to the Lunar Module Orion, EVA 2, Apollo 16, April 1972. Numbered 'NASA AS16-107-17436' (NASA MSC) in red on the recto u.l. margin. Vintage chromogenic print on fiber-based Kodak paper with 'A Kodak Paper' watermark on the verso, image size 7 x 7 1/8 in.

Stone Mountain, approximately 5 kilometers in the distance and 500 meters high, forms the skyline behind the LM. "This and similar views of the LM, Rover and our flag was always special,' recalled Duke. 'Other than the gray and white of the Moon, this was the only color. What a contrast to the stark Moon. The landing site that John selected was dead level so this made the deployment of the rover and the ALSEP a simple task" (Constantine, p. 99).

An overturned boulder at Station 2 and the magnetometer at the lunar-science station. 'At Station 2, the crew turned a boulder over so that they could obtain samples from beneath it…which might tell just how long the rock had been lying where they found it.
