The Last American Flag on the Moon

The first moonwalk of the last mission placing humans on the surface of the Moon began approximately four hours after landing, at about 6:55 PM on December 11, 1972 (40 years ago). The first task of the first lunar excursion was to offload the Lunar Roving Vehicle and other equipment from the Lunar Module.
