Astronaut stands by Hadley Rille

An Apollo 15 astronaut looks down on the Hadley Rille, nearly 1.5 km (.9 mi) across at its widest point. The astronauts observed layering in the lava flows in the wall on the opposite side of the rille, indicating that multiple lava flows formed the bedrock in this region.
