The first Lunar rover show

NASA wanted you to feel that you were part of the mission.

The Apollo 15 mission was the first mission equipped with a Lunar rover. It was basically a stripped down army jeep. On the jeep a camera was connected that could be controlled from Houston. They tried to give the viewer the feeling to be the third astronaut on the moon. This are not my words but those of NASA (Video part 2). Totally bizarre if you think of it today, but you grandparents fell for it.
