The Apollo 16 lunar module (LM) "Orion" was the fifth crewed vehicle to land on the Moon. It carried two astronauts, Commander John W. Young and LM pilot Charles M. Duke Jr., the ninth and tenth men to walk on the Moon. The LM also carried a Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV), an Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP) that contained scientific experiments to be deployed and left on the lunar surface, and other scientific and sample collection apparatus. The experiments performed on the Moon, in addition to the ALSEP suite, were geologic sample collection, surface photography, soil mechanics investigations to study the physical properties of the lunar regolith, the solar wind composition experiment which collected samples of solar wind for return to Earth, a cosmic-ray detector to measure heavy cosmic rays, a far-ultraviolet camera for lyman-alpha astronomical observations, and a portable surface magnetometer to study local magnetic sources. Date of decay is unknown.
