apollo 14 astronauts

Im Ries üben 1970 vier amerikanische Astronauten der Mission Apollo 14, Gesteine zu unterscheiden. "[33], Before the abort of the Apollo 13 mission, the plan was to have Apollo 14 land near Littrow crater, in Mare Serenitatis, where there are features that were thought to be volcanic. Audio CD. [77], At 81:56:40.70 into the mission (February 4 at 1:59:43 am EST; 06:59:43 UTC), the Service Propulsion System engine in the SM was fired for 370.84 seconds to send the craft into a lunar orbit with apocynthion of 169 nautical miles (313 km; 194 mi) and pericynthion of 58.1 nautical miles (107.6 km; 66.9 mi). After TLI, the CSM separated from the S-IVB, and Roosa performed the transposition maneuver, turning it around in order to dock with the LM before the entire spacecraft separated from the stage. Edgar D. Mitchell was pilot of the lunar module “Antares.” Apart from Shepard’s historic 15-minute suborbital flight, it was the first space mission for each of the astronauts. [4], Photographs taken in 2009 by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter were released on July 17, and the Fra Mauro equipment was the most visible Apollo hardware at that time, owing to particularly good lighting conditions. [72] Two legs combined with the wheels to provide four-point stability when at rest. The second consisted of four mortars (with their launch tubes), of different properties and set to impact at different distances from the experiment. Astronaut Alan B. Shepard Jr., Apollo 14 commander, stands by the deployed U.S. flag on the lunar surface during the early moments of the first EVA of the mission. [92][104], Antares lifted off from the Moon at 1:48:42 pm EST[42] (18:48:42 UTC) on February 6, 1971. He had experimental surgery in 1968 which was successful and allowed his return to flight status. The mission was originally scheduled for 1970, but was postponed because of the investigation following the failure of Apollo 13 to reach the Moon's surface, and the need for modifications to the spacecraft as a result. This photo was taken from the moon's orbit where the three-astronaut crew spent 20 hours orbiting the moon 10 times. Apollo 8 was the second manned mission in the Apollo program. It consisted of two parts. [83] Mitchell deployed the ASE's geophone lines, unreeling and emplacing the two 310 feet (94 m) lines leading out from the ALSEP's Central Station. [122] The SM reentered Earth's atmosphere and was destroyed, though there was no tracking or sightings of it. [76], The crew settled in for its voyage to Fra Mauro. [119] The pin is leaving Earth and is approaching the Moon. Apollo 14 hatte einen betont wissenschaftlichen Charakter und sollte wertvolle Erkenntnisse über den Mond liefern. Performing the bistatic radar experiment, he also focused Kitty Hawk's VHF and S-band transmitters at the Moon so that they would bounce off and be detected on Earth in an effort to learn more about the depth of the lunar regolith. 26 January 1971. Among those present to watch the launch were U.S. Vice President Spiro T. Agnew and the Prince of Spain, the future King Juan Carlos I. [42] This followed a launch delay due to weather of 40 minutes and 2 seconds; the first such delay in the Apollo program. [80], Shepard stated, after stepping onto the lunar surface, "And it's been a long way, but we're here. [47], The changes in response included a redesign of the oxygen tanks, with the thermostats being upgraded to handle the proper voltage. [107], A transearth injection burn took place on February 6 at 8:39:04 pm (February 7 at 01:39:04 UTC) taking 350.8 seconds, during Kitty Hawk's 34th lunar revolution. The two seismometers would, in combination with those left by later Apollo missions, constitute a network of such instruments at different locations on the Moon. Its objectives included a detailed probe on the moon. Die Anzahl an Alternativen ist bei uns zweifelsohne enorm gigantisch. [83], The astronauts had been surprised by the undulating ground, expecting flatter terrain in the area of the landing, and this became an issue on the second EVA, as they set out, MET in tow, for the rim of Cone crater. [41], The Apollo 14 spacecraft consisted of Command Module (CM) 110 and Service Module (SM) 110 (together CSM-110), called Kitty Hawk, and Lunar Module 8 (LM-8), called Antares. [11] The Lunar Module Pilot (LMP), Edgar Mitchell, aged 40 at the time of Apollo 14, joined the Navy in 1952 and served as a fighter pilot, beginning in 1954. [42][108] During the transearth coast, two tests of the oxygen system were performed, one to ensure the system would operate properly with low densities of oxygen in the tanks, the second to operate the system at a high flow rate, as would be necessary for the in-flight EVAs scheduled for Apollo 15 and later. Lennolla laskeuduttiin Fra Mauron alueelle, jonne dramaattisen Apollo 13:en suunniteltiin laskeutuvan. Fully loaded, the MET weighed about 165 pounds (75 kg). [79], A second problem occurred during the powered descent, when the LM landing radar failed to lock automatically onto the Moon's surface, depriving the navigation computer of vital information on the vehicle's altitude and vertical descent speed. Mission rules required an abort if the landing radar was out at 10,000 feet (3,000 m), though Shepard might have tried to land without it. Thermal … Bild: NASA . [83] On the way back to the LM, the astronauts collected and documented lunar samples, and took photographs of the area. [116], Roosa, who worked in forestry in his youth, took several hundred tree seeds on the flight. The two men pored over lunar maps depicting the areas the CSM would pass over. http://bit.ly/subAIRBOYD The most viewed aviation channel on YouTube. To find the sample's age, the research team from Curtin University looked at bits of the mineral zircon embedded in its structure. About 4 1/2 to 5 hours was required for... Apollo 14 Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell with the Apollo 14 emblem. The explosion damaged the other tank or its tubing, causing its contents to leak away. It had pressurized rubber tires 4 inches (10 cm) wide and 16 inches (41 cm) in diameter, containing nitrogen and inflated to about 1.5 pounds per square inch (10 kPa). After liftoff from the surface and a successful docking, the spacecraft was flown back to Earth where the three astronauts splashed down safely in the Pacific Ocean on February 9. [103] He also took astronomical photographs, of the Gegenschein, and of the Lagrangian point of the Sun-Earth system that lies beyond the Earth (L2), testing the theory that the Gegenschein is generated by reflections off particles at L2. [124] Antares' descent stage and the mission's other equipment remain at Fra Mauro at 3°39′S 17°28′W / 3.65°S 17.47°W / -3.65; -17.47 (Apollo 14 LM descent stage). After Apollo 13 returned, it was decided that its landing site, near Cone crater in the Fra Mauro formation, was scientifically more important than Littrow. The LM was modified to make transfer of power from LM to CM easier. That is to say, apart from 14321 we have less than 1 kg of rock—962 g to be exact—from what in my opinion is the most important single point reached by astronauts on the Moon. [48] The Apollo 13 astronauts had suffered shortages of water and of power after the accident. The fix made it appear to the system that an abort had already happened, and it would ignore incoming automated signals to abort. These were instituted because of the difficulty in telling one spacesuited astronaut from the other in photographs. Thereafter, checkout, testing and equipment installation proceeded. [114] They remained there until their release from quarantine on February 27, 1971. Shepard and Mitchell made their lunar landing on February 5 in the Fra Mauro formation – originally the target of Apollo 13. #AIRBOYD #AvGeek If the LM could not be extracted from its place on the S-IVB, no lunar landing could take place, and with consecutive failures, the Apollo program might end. [109] During his rest periods on the voyage, Mitchell conducted ESP experiments without NASA's knowledge or sanction, attempting by prearrangement to send images of cards he had brought with him to four people on Earth. [6] Shepard, at age 47, was the oldest U.S. astronaut to fly when he made his trip aboard Apollo 14, and he is the oldest person to walk on the Moon. Granite and quartz, which are commonly found on Earth but very rarely found on the Moon, were confirmed to exist on Big Bertha. The Apollo 14 crew: Stuart Roosa, Alan Shepard & Ed Mitchell. [31] In addition to the normal training workload, they had to supervise the changes to the command and service module (CSM) made as a result of the Apollo 13 investigation, much of which was delegated by Shepard to Roosa. [82] The first EVA lasted 4 hours, 47 minutes, 50 seconds. The LPM was new, but resembled equipment flown on Apollo 12. But when he gently brought the modules together, the docking mechanism would not activate. Als Verbindungssprecher während des Fluges dienten die Ersatzleute Gordon, Brand und Schmitt, die Mitglieder der Unterstützungsmannschaft (Allen, Henize und Parker), die Apollo-14-Astronauten Alan Shepard und Edgar Mitchell, sowie Gordon Fullerton aus der siebten Astronautengruppe. [14][15], Mitchell's commander on the Apollo 10 backup crew had been another of the original seven, Gordon Cooper, who had tentatively been scheduled to command Apollo 13, but according to author Andrew Chaikin, his casual attitude toward training resulted in his nonselection. [20], During projects Mercury and Gemini, each mission had a prime and a backup crew. [66] The OPSs used on Apollo 14 were modified from those used on previous missions in that the internal heaters were removed as unnecessary. [5] Thereafter, he was grounded by Ménière's disease, a disorder of the ear, and served as Chief Astronaut, the administrative head of the Astronaut Office. [59], The ASE would also measure seismic waves. On May 7, 1970, NASA Administrator Thomas O. Paine announced that Apollo 14 would launch no earlier than December 3, and the landing would be close to the site targeted by Apollo 13. Security officer Dearmond Matthews prepares to open the door to the quarantined area. [92], Some geologists were pleased enough with the close approach to Cone crater to send a case of scotch to the astronauts while they were in post-mission quarantine, though their enthusiasm was tempered by the fact that Shepard and Mitchell had documented few of the samples they brought back, making it hard and sometimes impossible to discern where they came from. A second burn, at 86:10:52 mission time, sent the spacecraft into an orbit of 58.8 nautical miles (108.9 km; 67.7 mi) by 9.1 nautical miles (16.9 km; 10.5 mi). Diese bestanden zu 20 % aus Proteinen, 62 % Kohlenhydraten und 18 % Fett. "[89] Geologist Lee Silver stated, "The Apollo 14 crews did not have the right attitude, did not learn enough about their mission, had the burden of not having the best possible preflight photography, and they weren't ready. [42] The Apollo 13 accident had been caused by the explosive failure of an oxygen tank, after the insulation of the internal wiring had been damaged by heating of the tank contents pre-launch—that the oxygen had gotten hot enough to damage the insulation had not been realized, since the protective thermostatic switches had failed because they were, through an error, not designed to handle the voltage applied during ground testing. [88], Once the astronauts returned to the vicinity of the LM and were again within view of the television camera, Shepard performed a stunt he had been planning for years in the event he reached the Moon, and which is probably what Apollo 14 is best remembered for. 28,50 € Nur noch 1 auf Lager (mehr ist unterwegs). He is the only astronaut from Project Mercury (the original Mercury Seven astronauts) to reach the Moon. Spacecraft: Apollo 14. [48] A third tank was also added, placed in Bay 1 of the SM, on the side opposite the other two, and was given a valve that could isolate it in an emergency, and allow it to feed the CM's environmental system only. This worked, and within an hour the joined spacecraft had separated from the S-IVB. [93] Others were less happy; Don Wilhelms wrote in his book on the geological aspects of Apollo, "the golf game did not set well with most geologists in light of the results at Cone crater. Der Start ... Jeder Astronaut erhielt täglich eine Ration von 635 Gramm mit etwa 2.800 Kalorien. [121] The flight name is replaced by "BEEP BEEP" and the backup crew's names are given. [68] Similarly, Shepard was the first on the lunar surface to wear a space suit with commander's stripes: red stripes on arms, legs, and on the helmet, though one had been worn by Lovell on Apollo 13. He had been impressed by the training given to Apollo 13 prime crew CMP Mattingly by geologist Farouk El-Baz and got El-Baz to agree to undertake his training. He then fired the thumper explosives, vibrations from which would give scientists back on Earth information about the depth and composition of the lunar regolith. "[26] For Apollo 14, they were: Pete Frank, Orange team; Glynn Lunney, Black team; Milt Windler, Maroon team and Gerry Griffin, Gold team. 26 January 1971. Although Mitchell strongly suspected the rim was nearby, they had become physically exhausted from the effort, and were instructed by Haise to sample where they were and then start moving back towards the LM. He stated after the mission that two of the four had gotten 51 out of 200 correct (the others were less successful), whereas random chance would have dictated 40. We Seven: By the Astronauts Themselves Scott M. Carpenter. Gebundene Ausgabe. All of the Apollo missions placed NASA and the astronauts under extreme pressure to succeed, but Apollo 14 faced unusual challenges even before it launched in February 1971. [69], The Modular Equipment Transporter (MET) was a two-wheeled handcart, used only on Apollo 14, intended to allow the astronauts to take tools and equipment with them, and store lunar samples, without needing to carry them. [74] Mission Control proposed that they try it again with the docking probe retracted, hoping the contact would trigger the latches. Apollo 14 was the fourth crewed moon landing and is most famous for being the first and only mission in which an astronaut played golf on the moon. [71], Apollo 14 launched from Launch Complex 39-A at KSC at 4:03:02 pm (21:03:02 UTC), January 31, 1971. Commander Alan Shepard, Command Module Pilot Stuart Roosa, and Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell launched on their nine-day mission on Sunday, January 31, 1971, at 4:03:02 p.m. EST, following a weather delay of forty minutes and two seconds. Apollo 14 Backup Commander Gene Cernan, left, outside astronaut crew quarters as Kennedy Space Center. The mission commander of Apollo 14, Alan Shepard, one of the original Mercury Seven astronauts, became the first American to enter space with a suborbital flight on May 5, 1961. The Apollo 14 basalts are generally richer in aluminum and sometimes richer in potassium than other lunar basalts. August 2020 um 20:48 Uhr bearbeitet. The software was hard-wired, preventing it from being updated from the ground. The mission commander of Apollo 14, Alan Shepard, one of the original Mercury Seven astronauts, became the first American to enter space with a suborbital flight on May 5, 1961. There were a few basalts that were collected in this mission in the form of clasts (fragments) in breccia. The central station was a 25 kg box with a stowed volume of 34,800 cubic cm. Apollo 11: The Inside Story David Whitehouse.

Da diese Mission den Mond jedoch nicht erreichte, übernahm Apollo 14 diese Aufgabe. Landing at Fra Mauro would also allow orbital photography of another candidate landing site, the Descartes Highlands, which became the landing site for Apollo 16. Auch wenn dieser Apollo astronaut scott ohne Zweifel im höheren Preissegment liegt, spiegelt sich der Preis auf jeden Fall in Langlebigkeit und Qualität wider. The Apollo 14(AS-509) mission - manned by astronauts Alan B. Shepard, Jr., Stuart A. Roosa, and Edgar D. Mitchell - was launched from Pad A, Launch Complex 39, … Cone crater was the result of a young, deep impact, and large enough to have torn through whatever debris was deposited since the Imbrium Event, which geologists hoped to be able to date. They topped one ridge that they expected was the crater rim, only to view more such terrain beyond. The Apollo 14 basalts were formed 4.0 to 4.3 billion years ago, older than the volcanism known to have occurred at any of the mare locations reached during the Apollo program. Stuart A. Roosa – Command Module Pilot on Apollo 14; Edgar D. Mitchell – Lunar Module … [71] The first use of tires on the Moon, these were developed by Goodyear and were dubbed their XLT (Experimental Lunar Tire) model. [81] One patch, attached to Shepard's PLSS, was worn on the lunar surface, and, mounted on a plaque, was presented by him to Cernan after the mission. Another of the original seven, Gordon Cooper, had (as Apollo 10's backup commander) tentatively been scheduled to command the mission, but according to author Andrew Chaikin, his casual attitude toward training, along with problems with NASA hierarchy (reaching all the way back to the Mercury-Atlas 9flight), resulted in his re… Am EST, November 9. [100][101] After the mission, troubleshooting found a tiny piece of aluminum contaminating the shutter control circuit, which caused the shutter to operate continuously. The original planned time, 3:23 pm, was at the very start of the launch window of just under four hours; had Apollo 14 not launched during it, it could not have departed until March. The astronauts devoted much of the first EVA to equipment offloading, deployment of the ALSEP and the US flag,[82] as well as setting up and loading the MET. NASA and the software teams at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology scrambled to find a solution. To the dismay of some geologists, Shepard and Mitchell did not reach the rim of Cone crater as had been planned, though they came close. This would prevent the low fuel light coming on prematurely, as had happened on Apollo 11 and 12. [121], The Apollo 14 command module Kitty Hawk is on display at the Apollo/Saturn V Center at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex after being on display at the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame near Titusville, Florida, for several years. The "javelin" and one of the golf balls wound up in a crater together, with Mitchell's projectile a little bit further. Apollo 14 was the eighth crewed mission in the United States Apollo program, the third to land on the Moon, and the first to land in the lunar highlands. Zur Hygiene dienten feuchte Tücher. [18] Schmitt flew instead of Engle because there was intense pressure on NASA to fly a scientist to the Moon (Schmitt was a geologist) and Apollo 17 was the last lunar flight. [29] On June 30, 1970, following the release of the accident report and a NASA review of what changes to the spacecraft would be necessary, NASA announced that the launch would slip to no earlier than January 31, 1971. [63] The LRRR acts as a passive target for laser beams, allowing the measurement of the Earth/Moon distance and how it changes over time. The effectiveness of the training was limited by a lack of enthusiasm shown by Shepard, which set the tone for Mitchell. A small cluster of rocks and a few prints made by the lunar overshoes of Mitchell are in the foreground. [99], Roosa took pictures from lunar orbit. [75] The stage was set on a course to impact the Moon, which it did just over three days later, causing the Apollo 12 seismometer to register vibrations for over three hours. [51], Other changes included the installation of anti-slosh baffles in the LM descent stage's propellant tanks. Apollo 14 begann seinen Weg zum Mond von Cape Canaveral . In such an emergency, the astronaut with the failed equipment would get oxygen from his Oxygen Purge System (OPS) backup cylinder, but the BSLSS would ensure he did not have to use oxygen for cooling, extending the life of the OPS. Shepard, at age 47, was the oldest U.S. astronautto fly when he made his trip aboard Apoll… [38] To prevent another such occurrence, for Apollo 14 NASA instituted what was called the Flight Crew Health Stabilization Program. [62] Earthrise: My Adventures as an Apollo 14 Astronaut (English Edition) eBook: Mitchell, Edgar, Mahoney, Ellen, Cox, Dr. Brian, Cox, Dr. Brian: Amazon.de: Kindle-Shop On later Apollo program missions, the self-propelled Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) was flown instead. The Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package consisted of a set of scientific instruments emplaced at the landing site by the astronauts. [98] After Antares separated and its crew began preparations to land, Roosa in Kitty Hawk performed a SPS burn to send the CSM to an orbit of approximately 60 nautical miles (110 km; 69 mi), and later a plane change maneuver to compensate for the rotation of the Moon. Apollo 14 astronauts, Stuart Roosa, Alan B. Shepard, Jr., and Edgar Mitchell, speak to personnel aboard the prime recovery vessel through the window... Kennedy Space Center, Florida: Rollout of the Apollo 14 launch vehicle began at 6:30 A. [12] He served on the support crew for Apollo 9 and was the LMP of the backup crew for Apollo 10. The instruments were arrayed around a central station which supplied power to run the instruments and communications so data collected by the experiments could be relayed to Earth. El-Baz had Roosa make observations while flying his T-38 jet at a speed and altitude simulating the speed at which the lunar surface would pass below the CSM. Der Urin wurde über Bord gepumpt, während die festen Abfallstoffe gesammelt wurden. [64] The LRRRs from Apollo 11, 14 and 15 are the only experiments left on the Moon by the Apollo astronauts that are still returning data. Breccias form when the heat and pressure of meteorite impacts fuse small rock fragments together. After the astronauts cycled the landing radar breaker, the unit successfully acquired a signal near 22,000 feet (6,700 m). [46], The changes to the Apollo spacecraft between Apollo 13 and 14 were more numerous than with earlier missions, not only because of the problems with Apollo 13, but because of the more extensive lunar activities planned for Apollo 14. Crewed missions are in, This page was last edited on 16 January 2021, at 15:41. During the two walks on the surface, 94.35 pounds (42.80 kg) of Moon rocks were collected, and several scientific experiments were deployed. Apollo 14 was the first H-type mission which was followed by Apollo 15. 71-H-192 ( 83k) Apollo 14 Backup Command Module Pilot Ron Evans waves from the cockpit of a T-38. Apollo 9 commander James McDivitt believed meetings that required a member of the flight crew were being missed, so for Apollo a third crew of astronauts was added, known as the support crew. There was no way NASA could stand two failures in a row. Nach dem Scheitern von Apollo 13 wurden einige der vorgesehenen Aufgaben auf Apollo 14 übertragen. 4,8 von 5 Sternen 10. [21] Usually low in seniority, support crew members assembled the mission's rules, flight plan, and checklists, and kept them updated;[22][23] for Apollo 14, they were Philip K. Chapman, Bruce McCandless II, William R. Pogue and C. Gordon Fullerton. Reihenfolge unserer qualitativsten Apollo astronaut scott. He became a fighter pilot and then in 1965 successfully completed Aerospace Research Pilot School (ARPS) at Edwards Air Force Base in California prior to his selection as a Group 5 astronaut the following year. The Apollo 12 instrument would also be activated by the spent Apollo 14 S-IVB booster, which would impact the Moon after the mission entered lunar orbit. The quantity probe in each tank was upgraded from aluminum to stainless steel. Apollo 14 Astronauts (L) R Stuart Roosa Alan B Shepard Jr And Edg F 334606 001 Usa File Photo: Apollo 14 Astronauts, (L-R) Stuart Roosa, Alan B. Shepard, Jr., And Edgar Mitchell, Speak To Personnel Aboard The Prime Recovery Vessel Through The Window Of The Mobile Quarantine Facility Following Their Recovery From The Pacific Ocean Feburary 9, 1971. Most lunar mare basalts collected during the Apollo program were formed from 3.0 to 3.8 billion years ago. [40] The launch vehicle stack, with the spacecraft on top, was rolled out from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Pad 39A on November 9, 1970. Apollo 14 oli kahdeksas miehitetty avaruuslento Apollo-ohjelmassa ja kolmas, joka laskeutui Kuuhun. [37], Another issue that had marked Apollo 13 was the last-minute change of crew due to exposure to communicable disease. [24] Had Haise walked on the Moon, he would have been the first Group 5 astronaut to do so, an honor that went to Mitchell. Eigentlich hätte das Fra-Mauro-Hochland schon früher Besuch von amerikanischen Astronauten erhalten sollen, nämlich mit Apollo 13. The SIDE measured ions on the lunar surface, including from the solar wind. He made several attempts over the next two hours, as mission controllers huddled and sent advice. Apollo 14 was the first mission on which the CSM propelled the LM to the lower orbit—though Apollo 13 would have done so had the abort not already occurred. Smoke Jumper, Moon Pilot: The Remarkable Life of Apollo 14 Astronaut Stuart Roosa Willie G. Moseley. [87] The difficulties faced by Shepard and Mitchell would emphasize the need for a means of transportation on the lunar surface with a navigation system, which was met by the Lunar Roving Vehicle, already planned to fly on Apollo 15. [42][54] The mission would take a faster trajectory to the Moon than planned, and thus make up the time in flight. [16] Also on that crew, but excluded from further flights, was Donn Eisele, likely because of problems aboard Apollo 7, which he had flown, and because he had been involved in a messy divorce. [45] Also considered part of the spacecraft were the Launch Escape System and the Spacecraft/Launch Vehicle Adapter. This would not prevent the astronauts from piloting the ship, though if an abort became necessary, they might have to initiate it manually. [56] The PSE had been flown on Apollo 12 and 13, the ASE on Apollo 13, the SIDE on Apollo 12, the CCIG on Apollo 12 and 13 and the LRRR on Apollo 11. Am 6. The Fra Mauro formation is composed of ejecta from the impact event that formed Mare Imbrium, and scientists hoped for samples that originated deep under the Moon's surface. Um ohne Zweifel davon ausgehen zu können, dass ein Mittel wie Apollo astronaut scott wirkt, müssen Sie sich die Ergebnisse und Meinungen anderer Nutzer im Web ansehen.Es gibt unglücklicherweise sehr wenige klinische Tests dazu, denn gewöhnlich werden jene einzig und allein … On the final evening in space, the crew conducted a press conference, with the questions submitted to NASA in advance and read to the astronauts by the CAPCOM. [117] Some seedlings were given to state forestry associations in 1975 and 1976 to mark the United States Bicentennial. In Apollo 14's most famous incident, Shepard hit two golf balls he had brought with him with a makeshift club. [118], The mission insignia is an oval depicting the Earth and the Moon, and an astronaut pin drawn with a comet trail. [13], Shepard and his crew had originally been designated by Deke Slayton, Director of Flight Crew Operations and one of the Mercury Seven, as the crew for Apollo 13. [57] The ALSEP components flown on Apollo 13 were destroyed when its LM burned up in Earth's atmosphere. When Shepard and Mitchell were on their geology field trips, Roosa would be overhead in an airplane taking photographs of the site and making observations. [66] These had been flown on Apollo 13, but Shepard and Mitchell were the first to use them on the Moon. [115] The Apollo 14 astronauts were the last lunar explorers to be quarantined on their return from the Moon. In the first, one of the crew members would deploy three geophones at distances up to 310 feet (94 m) from the ALSEP's Central Station, and on his way back from the furthest, fire thumpers every 15 feet (4.6 m). This was done to increase the amount of hover time available to the astronauts, a safety factor since Apollo 14 was to land in rough terrain.
