Apollo 15 was the first of what was generally termed the ‘super-science’ Apollo missions. Carrying the first lunar rover, extended capabilities in both the CSM and LM, improved pressure garments, and a scientific instrument module in the Service Module this was the initial flight of the final phase of the Apollo programme to the Moon where science took a more prominent position rather than simple completing the lunar mission profile and conducting some science along the way. The operational experiences of earlier Apollo missions and the expanded capabilities of the hardware allowed the programme planners to maximise the return from the final three missions, compensate somewhat for the loss of the Apollo 18-020 missions.
