A golf ball was found on the lunar surface.

A photography specialist unexpectedly managed to say a new word in astronautics!
In preparation for the lunar landing, American astronaut Alan Shepard persuaded management to let him take golf balls with him and hit them with a sampling device a couple of times.
Those agreed. But not for the sake of popularizing this sport on the moon.
Knowledge about the conditions on the surface of the satellite of our planet was so fragmentary that scientists wanted to trace the behavior of some familiar objects there, in order to then compare it with the terrestrial.
The golf idea came in handy. The theoretical calculations of scientists suggested that without an atmosphere and with a low level of gravity, the balls would fly many kilometers.
Shepard was allowed "time off from the mission" to devote to golf. After the first unsuccessful hit, the second ball went flying.
Shepard was familiar with the calculations of the scientists. Therefore, when it was not possible to see the ball in sight, he announced that the latter “flew many, many miles”.
