Astronomically bad parking

Yet another example of terrible and selfish parking, from the Apollo 15 mission of 1971.

Even though there is plenty of space here in Mare Imbrium, lunar rover driver David Scott has chosen to park right across this bike lane, forcing cyclists into an unpleasant and dangerous detour round Hadley Rille.

Isn't this just typical? We can put a man on the moon - yet we can't install reliable, safe cycle facilities.


  1. Yes, obviously another lunatic.

  2. And typically the bike lane stops in the middle of nowhere.

  3. Bah.. Just look at all those potholes, Moon council says its from meteorites but I'd like to think its down to their poor resurfacing
