Alan Shepard used a modified six iron during the Apollo 14 mission in 1971.
The folding "sampling arm" he used to pick up rocks, had a specially made Golf club head that could be screwed on. When he was done, he brought this folding "space golf club" back to Earth, and it was presented to comedian Bob Hope, an avid golfer well beloved by all branches of service.
Alan Shepard, commander of Apollo 14, using a modified 6-Iron, hit two golf balls while on the moon's surface.
Don't nobody know. Ctfu , YALL THOUGHT !
No. The lack of air would make that hard to do. But one astronaut did hit a golf ball on the moon.
One astronaut took along a golf ball, and hit it with an improvised golf club, so it may be claimed that golf is the Lunar sport- but it can be difficult to get to the golf course.
It would move and go 6 times as farther than on the moon due to the gravity of the moon being 1/6 of Earth's gravity.
None. Alan Shepard was the astronaut who hit golf balls on a later mission.
He didn't. The golf ball was hit on Apollo 14 by Alan Shephard
Alan Shepard hit the golf balls on the moon, with golf club. it went 200 or 300 yards.
Yes I can
Hit a golf ball?
When Armstrong landed on the moon in 1969 he placed a flag, collected moon rocks, and used a golf club to hit a ball.
During the Apollo 14 moon mission Alan B. Shepard hit a golf ball on the moon.
I enjoyed it.The Astronaut who played golf on the moon hit two shots, one was a one handed six iron which he shanked, the other a one handed six iron which he hit 350 yards!
A golf ball can be hit farther by using more strength. A golf ball can also be hit harder by using the right club and hitting the ball with the wind.
if the golf ball is hit into the air, the forces on the golf ball are pushing (when the golf ball is hit) and air resistance (when it is flying through the air). when the ball hits the ground and starts to roll, the only force acting on it is friction.
It works the same way it does on Earth. The momentum of the club is transferred to the golf ball and it travels. And it isn't slowed down by the friction of air.
A one handed 6 iron, it went 300 yards.
yes. it is possible to hit the tee with out moving the golf ball it just depends on how you hit it
a golf club
