Apollo 17 Landing site
The person who spots the Moon Rover in this image (and I dont mean that thing over to the right that they labelled LRV) can win a jellybean
Why would it be left right over there? If you have been driving around in a vehicle and walking in your space suit is a real drag, are you going to
leave it off to the side somewhere and then walk back to the Lunar Module? No, not likely.
Human nature automatically drives the vehicle up to the LM and then hops in and takes off back to Earth.
Plant the seed into our minds and most people will believe it
In one image of the Apollo 17 landing site, the last tracks left by astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt on the moon are visible. The
crisscrossing footprints can be easily distinguished from the tracks left by the astronauts' lunar rover.
And, since Robinson is well aware of what the lunar rovers look like, he said he "can actually see, if you squint really hard – can begin to
resolve the seats and the left wheels that are slightly turned to the left."
And I can almost smell the leather on the seats too!
Some of those tracks look as if a drunk has been walking around on the Moon. Why walk so far when you have the rover? I just dont understand these
footprints at all. In my mind, I see them hopping - rather like the first TV images showed them doing, but the footprint tracks here suggest they are
shuffling in the dirt.
The image of the Rover they give us includes the dimensions of the wheel-to-wheel distance front-to-back of 90 inches, thats just under 8 feet? and I
reckon the width is about 6 feet, now are those rover tracks made by that LRV thing I wonder? Possibly I suppose.
I have a theory on Mars that the Spirit Rover has been dismantled, and I wonder if this is what we are seeing here - that the LRV has mainly been
taken to pieces. Way out there on the edge? maybe...but sometimes hunches prove correct.
