Astronauts begin deployment of Lunar Roving Vehicle
While Astronaut Scott descends the LM's ladder onto the moon's surface, he actuates a mechanism that releases and lowers a compartment containing a television camera. He removes the camera and erects it on the lunar surface focusing on the LRV stowage compartment. Astronaut Irwin descends the ladder, collects a contingency sample of the lunar surface, reascends the ladder and pulls the LRV release mechanism, initiating the LRV deployment sequence.
