Description: The "Grover" - short for geologic rover - was tested on the Bonito Lava Flow in Sunset Crater Volcano NM in 1964, as well.

Driving the "Grover" are Gene Cernan (fore) and Harrison "Jack" Schmitt, both of whom walked on the moon as members of Apollo 17 in 1972. The lunar rover they drove while there remains at the Taurus-Littrow landing site.
