The Apollo 17 mission—of which Cernan commander—garnered a number of record-setting achievements. These included three EVAs —Extravehicular activity— totaling about 22 hours of exploration of the Taurus–Littrow valley. Cernan and Schmitt covered more than 22 miles using the Lunar Rover, and collected a record 75 pounds of geologic samples. Cernan piloted the rover on its final run, during which he clocked a maximum speed of 11.2 mph, giving him the (unofficial) lunar land speed record.
