This is the landing site of the last Apollo mission (Apollo 17). It was in the valley among the Taurus-Littrow hills on the southeastern rim of Mare Serenitatis. Astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison H. Schmitt explored the valley with the aid of an electrically powered car. This image shows Schmitt inspecting a huge boulder that has rolled down the side of an adjacent hill.
