Title: Astronaut John Young stands at ALSEP deployment site during first EVA
Astronaut John W. Young, commander of the Apollo 16 lunar landing mission, 
stands at the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP) deployment 
site during the first Apollo 16 extravehicular activity (EVA-1) at the 
Descartes landing site. The components of the ALSEP are in the background. 
The lunar surface drill is just behind and to the right of Young. The
drill's  rack and bore stems are to the left. The three sensor Lunar
Surface  Magnetometer is beyond the rack. The dark object in the right
background is  the Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator (RTG). Between the
RTG and the  drill is the Heat Flow Experiment. A part of the Central

taken by Astronaut  Charles M. Duke Jr., lunar module pilot.
