Taurus–Littrow, a lunar valley located on the near side of the Moon, was the landing site for the Apollo 17 Moon mission in December 1972. This was the last crewed mission to the lunar surface. This valley is located on the southeastern edge of Mare Serenitatis in the Taurus mountain range and south of the Littrow crater. The valley was named by the Apollo 17 crew. This location was selected as the Apollo 17 landing site to sample highland material and young volcanic material at the same location.
