Today, NASA celebrates 50 years since the Apollo 15 mission. The mission began on July 26, 1971 (at which time the Apollo 15 spacecraft took off) and  ended successfully on August 7, 1971!. This was the eighth mission that was successfully completed. At that time, Commander David Scott and Pilot of the Lunar Module James Irwin spent three days on the moon. In addition, during the Apollo 15 mission, they spent over 18 hours outside the spacecraft. 

Happy birthday to the Apollo program and the Apollo 15 mission!
