Commander David Scott and Lunar Module Pilot James Irwin landed near Hadley Rille and explored the local area using the rover, allowing them to travel further from the lunar module than had been possible on previous missions. Two months after the mission David Scott, James Irwin, and Alfred Worden were in Cambridge, England.
