L. Apollo is pictured here by an artist of The Martin Co., one of three leading Space Age manufacturers awarded study contracts on project by NASA. Apollo was a god of Ancient Greece, son of Clymene and Titan. This is nicely appropriate, since Martin produces the mighty Titan intercontinental ballistic missile.
R. The Apollo lunar spacecraft planned to carry 3 crewmen on round trip between earth and the moon is shown above here enroute among the stars. Protruding fan-shapes are solar arrays to gather energy from sun for use aboard. Apollo was said to have been the triumphant participant in Olympic games. Homer called him the “god of prophecy.”
This is a Martin Co. engineering design of a shuttle vehicle to carry five men, or an equivalent amount of equipment, to a rendezvous in orbit with a space station. After delivering it’s load, this vehicle returns to earth by following a glide pattern and slowing in the earth’s atmosphere until landing speed can be attained.
