Lunar Liftoff

  1. Mariner IV determined that Mars’ atmosphere is only 1 to 2 percent of the Earth’s in density. This may mean that future manned spacecraft to Mars must employ the same landing technique – retro rockets – as the ones which will be used by the Apollo lunar ship.
  2. Artist’s drawing of interplanetary explorers maintaining contact through the use of small radio equipment. This particular transmitter is also designed to transmit data concerning the condition of the astronaut and the functioning of his suit.

Martin Apollo

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.”
