Just to re-clarify...
The stuff to the left side of the LM has nothing, nada, zilch to do with with the rover.
The rover had NO packing materials, nothing
whatsoever that was unwrapped - it simply unfolded from its location on the RIGHT, and the astronauts then spent a little time locking various pins
etc to finalise the assembly. The stuff on the left is, as Phage pointed out, all to to do with the MESA stuff - that area was the main stowage
for various bits of equipment and experiments, of which there were many.
Now it should also be noted that if you read the Journal for that period (I can give the link if anyone needs it), it is very obvious that the A16
astronauts lifted and MOVED the Rover after unfolding and detaching it from the LM as they finalised the deployment and made sure it was operational
(initially it had a few problems..). While I have no direct evidence to offer (simply because I haven't looked!) as to the exact movements, if you
examine the image it would be a pretty obvious thing to do to move the Rover out of the shadow to better be able to see what they were doing. And on
the moon, picking up the rover was *easy* (let alone rolling/driving it..).
So the problem, theability, was that you made three assumptions (which you were invited to do by Allen/White). First, that there would be lots of
'residue' (packing materials, etc) from the Rover, second that the stuff on the left were those materials, and third that the image showing the
Rover well after deployment, showed it where it was offloaded.
All three assumptions are false
. No reflection on you, mate, but it shows how Apollo deniers operate - misinform, mislead, misdirect, and hope
that you are not well-informed about the Apollo mission. And these aspects of the missions are often complex and involved, so the opportunities for
this sort of bait-and-switch stuff are almost endless.
And, the ability, I would have to observe that you were VERY adamant that you were right, when you confidently posted your incorrect 'conclusion'.
The LR moved, it isn't hard to see. Like I said you trying to convience me its not that way, but you gave the document that PROVES it
Hmm. In hindsight, was that attitude appropriate?
