Default Happy Birthday, Lunar Rovers!

More than a module: today (July 30), it seems, is the anniversary of the Moon's getting its first Lunar Rover, courtesy of Apollo 15 (both 16 and 17 had them, too)...

This article provides a wonderful postscript - from a fellow who was present at the creation, and the restoration too! Enjoy:
