During their 67 hours on the Moon, astronauts Scott and Irwin made three excursions on the surface including the first use of a lunar roving vehicle. During that time, astronaut Worden made 74 orbits of the Moon in the command and service module. All three astronauts returned safely to Earth on 7 August 1971.
