It would seem that Virgin Galactic are getting more than a little excited about their inaugural trip into space, with the world’s first commercial spaceline posting this stunning NASA video of astronauts taking the lunar rover for a spin on the moon.
In the footage, which has become known as the ‘lunar rover Grand Prix’, Apollo 16 astronauts John Young and Charlie Duke can be seen going for an afternoon ride across the planet’s surface.
Watching it got us thinking. What would be the first thing you’d do if you made it to the moon? Plant a flag? Go for a drive? Hunt for cheese? Let us know! Or why not take a look at what Galactic’s future astronauts have to say about their first trip into space.
