Duct tape on the moon

During the Apollo 17 mission in 1972, one of the lunar rover's fenders broke and lunar dust became a problem. The astronauts used duct tape, clamps, and maps to fix the problem.

My young son is obsessed with the moon, always points at it and gets excited. He predictably loves cars, too. I always point back at it with him and say "there's a car up there!" which drives him nuts.
