Designed back in 1959 as a laboratory and living quarters for its three man crew, the Moon Ship was the type of vehicle which they imagined would be used on the first lunar exploration expeditions. Once free of its giant booster rockets, the Moon Ship would be propelled in space by its own nuclear power plant. Approximately five days after blast-off, it would make its landing in one of the giant Moon craters, probably Plato. Once the landing was made, the crew, clad in special space suits, would spend two days making scientific observations on the lunar surface. When their work was completed, they would blast off from the Moon for the return trip to Earth. The crew would consist of a Pilot, Navigator, and a Flight Engineer and each of these men would also be accomplished scientists capable of making every minute on the Moon count. for ages 14 and up
