A NASA written account of deployment of the first lunar rover.  NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama was responsible for development of the Lunar Roving Vehicle  (Lunar Rover).

We ended up with 1010 entries in our logbook for this event. During which I encountered one man who worked on every heat-shield put on the bottom of the Apollo Command Modules and another who’d worked, during that time, at Grumman where the Lunar Module was built.
