说明:为NASA得了三分。1971年在阿波罗15号登月任务行将结束之际,宇航员戴维德·斯科特正准备踢定位球得分,为NASA带来另一场戏剧性胜利来结束任务。而斯科特用的是一种特别为在崎岖月面上面举行比赛的月球足球。R2-D2的上一代R1-D1在场边欢呼。APOD祝大家愚人节快乐。在这张照片里,实际上宇航员斯科特正在安放一个钻头,来测量月面温度随着月球深度的变化。前景设备实际上被用来探测从太阳上逃逸的高能粒子。

Astronaut Kicks Lunar Field Goal

Explanation: Score three points for NASA. With time running out late in Apollo 15’s mission to the Moon in 1971, Astronaut David Scott prepared to split the uprights and bring about yet another dramatic end-of-the-mission victory for NASA. Scott used a special lunar football designed for the rugged games held on the Moon. R1-D1, a predecessor to R2-D2, cheered from the sideline. Happy April Fools’ Day from the folks at APOD. In reality, Astronaut Scott placed a drill that measured how temperature changed with lunar depth. The foreground device actually detected high-energy particles that escaped from the Sun.
