Astronauts Say Chevron Soil Compactors Were Used in The Fake Moon Bays.
The Astronauts have a hard time going up the steep slope back to the rover, Astronaut Jim says to Astronaut Dave, that he wished Dave had "packed the slope a little better" to make it easier to climb. Astronaut Dave says for the next Faked Moon Mission, he will make sure the slopes are packed better. Astronaut Dave was one of those who oversaw the Fake Moon Bay Studio construction. Astronaut Jim says "Chevrons do a good job of compacting this soil". Chevron Heavy Roller Soil Compactors were used in the High and Low Roof Bay Fake Moon-Set Studio's, to lay down all the Fake Moon Soil.
