An excellent view of the Apollo 14 Lunar Module on the moon, as photographed during the first Apollo 14 extravehicular activity (EVA) on the lunar surface. The astronauts- Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell- have already deployed the U.S. flag.
(February 1971) — The Apollo Command and Service Modules (CSM) are photographed against a black sky background from the Lunar Module (LM) above the moon. While astronauts Alan B. Shepard Jr., commander, and Edgar D. Mitchell, lunar module pilot, descended in the LM “Antares” to explore the Fra Mauro region of the moon, astronaut Stuart A. Roosa , command module pilot, remained with the CSM “Kitty Hawk” in lunar orbit.
(5 Feb. 1971) — The Apollo 14 Lunar Module (LM) as seen by the two moon-exploring crewmen of the Apollo 14 lunar landing mission, photographed against a brilliant sun glare during the first extravehicular activity (EVA). A bright trail left in the lunar soil by the two-wheeled modularized equipment transporter (MET) leads from the LM. While astronauts Alan B. Shepard Jr., commander, and Edgar D. Mitchell, lunar module pilot, were exploring the moon, astronaut Stuart A. Roosa, command module pilot, was maneuvering the Command and Service Modules (CSM) in lunar orbit.
(9 Feb. 1971) — The Apollo 14 Command Module (CM), with astronauts Alan B. Shepard Jr., commander; Stuart A. Roosa, command module pilot; and Edgar D. Mitchell, lunar module pilot, aboard, approaches touchdown in the South Pacific Ocean to successfully end a 10-day lunar landing mission. The splashdown occurred at 3:04:39 p.m. (CST), Feb. 9, 1971, approximately 765 nautical miles south of American Samoa. The three crew men were flown by helicopter to the USS New Orleans prime recovery ship.
(July 1970) — Two crew men of the Apollo 14 lunar landing mission participate in lunar surface simulation training at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC). They are deploying components of the Apollo lunar surface experiments package (ALSEP). Standing in the center next to the ALSEP central station is astronaut Alan B. Shepard Jr. (wearing red stripe on space suit), commander. Astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell, lunar module pilot, is in the left foreground. Both crew men are wearing the Extravehicular Mobility Units (EMU).
