Apollo 17 then and now
Forum regular kodemunkey posted this unusual picture of the Apollo 17 launch on the forum:
The Apollo 17 Saturn V illuminates the Florida sky as it streaks to the Moon
As this year is the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 17 mission I thought it appropriate to contrast this picture of the start of the mission with recent high resolution images taken by LROC’s narrow angle camera showing the Apollo 17 landing site as it was left 40 years ago.
There’s a lot of hardware up there!
