Scientific Exploration of the Moon Using a Roving Vehicle 660145

A planning study of support systems for use in conjunction with Project Apollo to explore the moon is described. Engineering design of the support systems requires preliminary definitions of typical scientific mission plans. This paper discusses some of the more recent measurement results which affect decisions in lunar mission planning, including geophysical techniques used on the earth which will be useful for lunar exploration, lunar site selection, typical sortie traverse design, and statistical data on lunar missions.
