Apollo lunar rover, artwork

Apollo lunar rover, artwork. Two Apollo astronauts in a lunar rover, exploring on the Moon. Their lunar landing module is at upper left. The lunar rovers were used on the last three Apollo missions (Apollo 15, 16 and 17). Each rover was used three times, once for each day of the three-day stays on the lunar surface. They were driven between 12 and 20 kilometres on each excursion, with the excursions lasting between three and four-and-a-half hours. The route taken was planned to allow the astronauts to walk back to the landing module if the rover failed. The rovers had a video camera and high-gain antenna to transmit images back to Earth

Harvey Allen, US aeronautical engineer C014/0566

Harvey Allen (1910-1977). Portrait of the US aeronautical engineer and director of NASA's Ames Research Center, Harry (Harvey) Julian Allen, standing in front of a blackboard with his Blunt Body Theory equations. Allen is best known for this Blunt Body Theory of re-entry aerodynamics. This theory permitted successful recovery of orbiting spacecraft and led to the design of ablative heat shields that protected the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo astronauts as their space capsules re-entered the Earth's atmosphere. He served as Center Director of the NASA Ames Research Center from 1965 to 1969. His techniques are still used to this day. Photographed at Ames Research Center, California, USA, in 1957

Apollo 1 crew in training, 1960s C016/6370 Featured Apollo Missions Image

Apollo 1 crew in training, 1960s C016/6370

Apollo 1 crew in training. NASA astronauts Roger Chaffee (1935-1967), Edward White (1930-1967) and Gus Grissom (1926-1967) in the Apollo command module during training for the Apollo 1 mission. It was during a launch pad testing session, similar to this test, that the three astronauts were killed on 27 January 1967. An electrical short-circuit ignited the flammable high-pressure 100 percent oxygen atmosphere. Changes were made following an investigation. The Apollo programme resumed with several unmanned flights, with the first manned flight (Apollo 7) taking place on 11 October 1968. Numerous memorials have been dedicated to the three astronauts
