Monday, February 6, 2017: On this day in 1971, Apollo 14 astronaut Alan Shepard became the first person to play golf on the moon. He smuggled a makeshift golf club head onto the spacecraft inside a sock. The first ball he hit veered into a nearby crater, but with a solid second swing, the next ball soared for “miles and miles and miles” in the moon’s microgravity. Here, Shepard stands by the Modular Equipment Transporter, a cart for lugging gear around on the lunar surface. — Hanneke Weitering
