Chaffee Lunar Landmarks: Apollo Crater is located on the far side of the moon and is more than 800 km (500 miles) across. Six craters in the crater area are named after astronauts; Apollo 8: Jim Lovell, Frank Borman and Bill Anders (the first humans to reach the moon) and Apollo 1, Ed White, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee. Chaffee Crater was dedicated in 1970. The crater is 49 km (30 miles) across and located at 38.8ºS, 153.9ºW. Apollo Crater is of significant interest in moon research because it offers an opportunity to examine the stratigraphy of the lunar crust. On the basin floor and surrounding areas of the crater a number of rocks appear to be ejecta and underlying material from depths as great as 30 km (18 miles) deep inside the moon.
Chaffee Martian Landmarks: Chaffee Hill on Mars is located 14.3 km (8.9 miles) south-southwest, 199.6º azimuth, of the Mars Exploration Spirit landing site in the Gusev Crater (14.8ºS 184.8ºW). The hill was dedicated in 2004. Gusev Crater (Aeolis Region, Quadrangle MC23) is a 165 km (103 mile) wide crater that was likely formed three to four billion years ago when an asteroid crashed just south of Mars’ equator. To the south of Gusev Crater is the outflow of a valley/channel system called Ma'adim Vallis. Ma'adim Vallis snakes northward along the Martian landscape for more than 900 km (560 miles), 1.5 times longer than the Grand Canyon, and could have drained mud slurry, water or ice into the crater.
