Apollo 15 is an October 1971 Lunar mission by NASA to scout for a permanent moon base. Edward Baldwin was initially removed from the program after leaking his comments to the press. However, he was let back onto the mission after testifying to congress. Gordo Stevens was promised a spot in Apollo 15 if he complied to his wife joining the program. However, he was later replaced by Molly Cobb, who succeeded in finding ice on the moon. The third crew member and Command module pilot was Frank Sedgewick.
The Command and Service Module of Apollo 15 was called Endeavour while the Lunar Module was called Seahawk. Seahawk landed on the rim of the Shackelton Crater; its landing location was close to the future location of the Jamestown Moon base.
