Beschreibung:

PERMANENTLY SHADOWED LUNAR SOIL NEXT TO THIS LARGE BOULDER Large black and white Hasselblad photograph, 11 x 14 inches. A 1970's print with labeling reading: "This Paper Manufactured by Kodak" on verso. Hasselblad frame A16-106-17392, taken at Station 13 during the third and final EVA of the Apollo 16 mission. The large boulder nick-named "Shadow Rock" by the LM crew is seen on the right side of the image. While inspecting and sampling this large boulder, the crew realized that it cast a shadow to the north, thus had been shadowing the lunar soil located just beneath. This lunar soil was collected by the crew which had not been exposed to direct solar radiation for millions or perhaps over a billion years since the boulder was placed there most probably from a nearby impact crater. Part of the lunar rover and Astronaut John Young are seen at the left most edge.
