Directory - Section 22

The largest lunar mountain range, the Apennines, and the prominent crater Archimedes dominate this part of the Moon close to the prime meridian. It was at the foot of the Apennines, close to Rima Hadley, that the Apollo 15 expedition landed.  Refer to your Antonin Rukl lunar atlas chart, page 71.
