The first of the extended , or "J" missions, Apollo 15 extended the duration and scope of lunar exploration. The astronauts spent 67 hours on the Moon's surface and were the first to use the lunar rover to extend their geological reach. The well-known "Genesis Rock", a white rock representing the ancient lunar crust, was collected on this mission and was perhaps the oldest rock brought back from the Moon.
