The Kennedy Space Center visitor complex is home to a number of museums, two IMAX theatres, and bus tours that allow visitors to see various restricted areas that otherwise would not be possible.
Accompanying note: "The Apollo 17 crew pose on the Lunar Roving Vehicle. Apollo 17 Commander Eugene A. Cernan sits at the controls, Dr. Harrison 'Jack' Schmitt left, and Command Module Pilot [Ronald E]. Evans."
Lunar roving vehicles were first used on July 31, 1971 during the Apollo 15 mission. Used on the Moon during the last three missions of the Apollo program (15, 16, and 17) in the early 1970s, they were left behind to allow for collection of more moon rocks.
