AS16-116-18678 (23 April 1972) --- A view from the moving Apollo 16 Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) as the crew men headed "home" at the end of the mission's third and final extravehicular activity (EVA). Astronaut John W. Young called attention to the series of block fields between the Lunar Module (LM) and LRV. Young also noted that, "The LM was obviously sitting in the only flat place around." Stone Mountain stretches about half way across the background. The high gain antenna and the RCA television camera on the LRV are in the foreground. While astronauts Young, commander; and Charles M. Duke Jr., lunar module pilot; descended in the Apollo 16 LM "Orion" to explore the Descartes highlands landing site on the moon, astronaut Thomas K. Mattingly II, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) "Casper" in lunar orbit.
