(April 1970)—-Astronaut Eugene A. Cernan (right), backup crew commander of the Apollo 14 lunar landing mission, pours a scoop-full of sample material into a bag held by astronaut Joe H. Engle, Apollo 14 backup crew lunar module pilot. The two joined the prime crew members and other Manned Spacecraft Center (MSC) personnel on a training trip to various areas of Hawaii. Here in Kapoho, the two backup crew members for NASA’s next lunar landing mission are taking part in a full simulation of a traverse on the lunar surface. Note the check-list on Cernan’s left wrist. He carries a penetrometer in his belt. The terrain in this area bears many similarities to that on the lunar surface. (Photo credit: NASA)

A GOOD POST.
Gene Cernan was the best roadie on the Aerosmith tour.
