Scott prepared to follow Irwin up the ladder. Lee Silver was their mentor for field
geology. ``I think you may have passed your final exam.'' ``Okay!'' Scott laughed.
His exploration of Hadley-Apennine at an end, he took a final look around, then

including our visits to the moon. Probably nothing has had a more widespread
impact on our lives ...
