Exercise 1.6

Create an argument map of the simple argument or arguments contained in the following passage from Apollo Moon Landings.  Note that you will need to:

The tyres of the Lunar Roving Vehicle have also been brought into question, as many think they would be likely to explode in the vacuum of space. Again, a simple bit of homework reveals that the tyres were not of the traditional, inflated rubber kind. The purpose-built LRV tyres were actually made from a mesh of zinc-coated piano wire, to which titanium treads were riveted in a chevron pattern. [8.5]

Note: you'll probably find that it helps you to read the passage in the context of the surrounding paragraphs in Apollo Moon Landings (p.8).
