Editor's Comments: Regarding the rover's damaged fender, author Andrew Chaikin says: "Before the geology traverse, Cernan had accidentally caught his hammer on the Rover's right rear fender and before he realised it – most of the fender was gone. As a result the entire geology traverse was accompanied by a spray of dust that shot skyward and rained down on the two men." Then, the following day: "After repairing the Rover's broken fender with some maps, grey tape and clamps – a fix devised overnight in one of mission control's back rooms," this fender gave out finally on the way back to the LM [after the last geology trip].

However, with conspicuously absent tracks, all this sounds like pure fantasy if the rovers were never actually driven on the Moon. See also article Further Findings.







On way to final parking place

Editor's Note: According to the record, the Apollo 17 rover was finally parked several kilometres away from the LM. See also Final resting place for rover? below.








Final resting place for rover?
apollo hoax theory

Editor's Comment: Three more questions:

1) Why is the dish antenna pointed forward, when in the inset photo the dish is pointed backward?

2) Is the distance of the LM in this photo commensurate with the 4 ks from the LM indicated on NASA map of Apollo 17 stations? (See later study Same hill used many times.)

3) Why is the lighting so different in both these pictures? In the inset photo, the light source is from left of frame and the front wheel is in shadow, in the main photo the wheel is in a different position and not in shadow. In the main image the lighting is higher and onto the rear of the LRV. Therefore a) the rover has been moved between these images – except there are no tracks, as Jack White points out – and b) the lighting is from a completely different height in the 'sky.'
