• Apollo 11 in the Mare Tranquillitatis (Sea of Tranquility). In addition to equipment, items that remain on site, include: a gold olive branch; Cosmonaut Medals honoring the achievements of Yuri Gagarin and Vladimir Komarov, both of whom passed away before the Apollo mission; a disc carrying goodwill statements and messages from leaders of 74 countries around the world.
• Apollo 12: first precise manned landing on the Moon.
• Apollo 14: first color video images of the surface of the Moon.
• Apollo 15: first use of the Lunar Roving Vehicle
• Apollo 16: first to land in the Lunar highlands.
