Apollo 16 Colorized Footage of Lunar Rover Grand Prix

Apollo 16

In the year 1972, Apollo 16 commander John Young recorded footage of astronaut Charlie Duke testing out the electrically powered lunar rover by rolling over the hills and craters of the moon.

This footage, which is known as “The Apollo 16 LRV Grand Prix”, was visually and audibly stabilized by NASA in 2019. Video editor Denis Shiryaev restored the footage further with 4K high definition image resolution at 60 frames per second, used neural networks to smooth out the rough parts, added a calming soundtrack and a bit of colorization.
