As the Lunar Module pilot on Apollo 16, Charlie Duke became the tenth person to walk on the Moon and one of only six people to experience the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) – one of the most advanced, innovative electric vehicles ever built. And yet, until recently, he hadn’t driven an electric car on Earth. To mark the 50th anniversary of the first LRV landings on the lunar surface, he did just that – behind the wheel of a Porsche Taycan.

The music on the film was created by the same composer who was behind the Apollo 11 film soundtrack, and features samples of the Taycan engine sound. Check out Matt Morton's story here:
