USAF test pilot Jim Irwin was selected for the Apollo programme in 1966 and flew only one spaceflight as Lunar Module Pilot Apollo 15 in the summer of 1971. Together with Commander Dave Scott he spent three days exploring the Hadley Rille and Apennine Mountains in the southeast edge of the Mare Imbrium (Sea of Rains) region of the moon, driving the first Lunar Roving Vehicle and participating in the first scientifically expanded and extended Apollo lunar mission whist Al Worden completed further scientific observations and photography from orbit. He left NASA in 1972 to set up his own High Flight Foundation established to share his faith and humanity with Irwin becoming a popular and frequent speaker across the world and search for the site of Noah’s Ark in Europe.
