(ADVANCE FOR FRIDAY PMS, SEPT. 6 — WITH SPECIAL REPORT BY HOWARD BENEDICT)
(NY21 – Aug.30) AFTER APOLLO IS ON THE MOON — This artist’s conception presents one view of what a 12 to 24 man spacecraft may look like when scientists begin to plan for space development after the Apollo landing on the moon. The target date for that project is 1970, after which may come development of space stations, flights to Mars and moon bases. This type of spacecraft would be launched in pieces and assembled in space by astronauts. Crew replacement and supplies would be brought in by smaller craft, left.
