S73-22871 (13 December 1972) --- Scientist-astronaut Harrison H. Schmitt is photographed standing next to a huge, split lunar boulder during the third Apollo 17 Extravehicular Activity (EVA-3) at the Taurus-Littrow landing site. The Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV), which transported Schmitt and Eugene A. Cernan to this extravehicular station from their Lunar Module (LM), is seen in the background. The mosaic is made from two frames from Apollo 17 Hasselblad magazine 140. The two frames were photographed by Cernan.
Square format Apollo archive images have been slightly cropped to achieve a 5:4 Landscape aspect ratio. Many of the original images were captured on film using the 70mm (2.25” x 2.25”) Hassleblad Lunar Camera which produces a square (1:1) ratio. You may select “Full Frame” next to the order button if you want the untouched original size. The default is Landscape.
