Ten are from Luna 21, which, on January 15, 1973, landed on the lunar surface and deployed the lunar rover Lunokhod 2.For nearly four months, the rover explored the moon, covering more than twenty-three miles, sending back thousands of individual photos and eighty-six panoramas like these from its three cameras. The lander was known to carry a bas-relief of Vladimir Lenin and a Soviet State Emblem. Both are visible in certain of these images. All are captioned with detailed pastedowns in Russian (one handwritten). These were Ivanovsky's personal copies; he was the director for the Sputnik, Luna, Vostok 1, and Lunokhod programs. Interestingly, Richard Garriott, son of the Skylab and Shuttle Astronaut Owen K. Garriott, actually owns both Luna 21 and Lunokhod 2 where they sit on the moon. Some tape loose, overall fine.
