"This image show the lunar module pilot of Apollo 15 standing by the central station of the Apollo lunar surface experiments package (ALSEP) in this artist's concept of the Hadley-Apennine landing site. The two ALSEP components directly in the front of the central station are the solar wind experiment and the heat flow experiment. This artist's concept was excerpted from "On the Moon with Apollo 15: A guidebook to Hadley Rille and the Apennine mountains," by Gene Simmons."
