John Young jumps off the ground and salutes for this superb tourist picture. He is off the ground about 1.45 seconds which, in the lunar gravity field, means that he launched himself at a velocity of about 1.17 m/s and reached a maximum height of 0.42 m. Although the suit and backpack weigh as much as he does, his total weight is only about 65 pounds (30 kg) and, to get this height, he only had to bend his knees slightly and then push up with his legs. In the background, we can see the UV astronomy camera, the flag, the LM, the Rover with the TV camera watching John, and Stone Mountain.

Rollin’ through tha craters, haters see ya later, my lunar rover gets mileage that would please Ralph Nader …
If you haven’t seen these lunar rover “Grand Prix” clips from NASA, I highly recommend checkin’ them out. Because you’ve always wanted a driver’s-eye view of the lunar surface! So. Amazing.
Try and hold back your compliments on my amazing lyrical skills.
