Lunar Lander Model

This 1963 model depicts an early Apollo lunar lander concept, called a "bug," landing on the moon. Engineers designed several possible vehicle shapes for both manned and unmanned landers. In 1961, Bruce Lundin, former director of NASA's Lewis Research Center (now Glenn), chaired the "Lundin Committee," a NASA study group that assessed a variety of ways to accomplish a lunar landing mission.
