Welcome to the UAH Library Lunar Roving Vehicle Database!
The Lunar Roving Vehicle Collection at the M. Louis Salmon Library consists of documents relating to the development, construction, and testing of the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV). The LRV, first used by the crew of Apollo 15 on their July 31-August 2, 1971 mission, allowed the astronauts to explore more of the moon’s surface. The LRV had a range of about 92 kilometers and had power for up to 78 hours of operation.
Former LRV Project Manager, Saverio (Sonny) Morea, donated his collection of documents relating to LRV. These documents are indexed and can be studied in the Archives Department of the UAH Library.
To gain access to these documents, please make a note of the citations, including the "LOCATION" field. Documents can be accessed in the Archives department during regular operating hours. For more information about archives, contact Anne Coleman at 256-824-6523 or email email@example.com.
