The landing site for the final Apollo lunar
landing mission, Taurus-Littrow, takes its name from the Taurus
mountains and Littrow crater which are located in a mountainous
region on the southeastern rim of the Serenitatis basin.
The actual target landing site is at 30°
44´ 58.3¨ east longitude by 20° 9´ 50.5¨ north
latitude -- about 750 km east of the Apollo 15 landing site at Hadley
The site was surrounded by three high, steep
massifs. Most of the plain between the massifs is covered by a dark
mantle which apparently has no large blocks or boulders, and which
had been interpreted to be a pyroclastic deposit. The dark mantle
is pocked by several small, dark halo craters that could be volcanic
vents all near the landing site.
Another prominent landing site feature was
an 80-meter high scarp trending roughly north-south near the west
side of the valley into the north massif.
