Apollo 14
Apollo 14 was our third Moon landing,should have been the fourth but Apollo 13 had issues and were lucky to make it home. Apollo 14 lifted off on January 31st, 1971 and Landed on the Moon on February 5th Near Fra Mauro.
this was the task: perform selenological inspection, survey, and sampling of materials. Deploy a lunar experiment package and obtain photographs.
To all you sports fans Alan Shepard made a couple of Golf Shots that were "Out of This World" with a 6 Iron he smuggled on board...One to a near by crater the other went on forever!
