American manned lunar lander. Study 1961. This early open-cab Langley design used cryogenic propellants. The cryogenic design was estimated to gross 3,284 kg - to be compared with the 15,000 kg / 2 man LM design that eventually was selected.

Status: Study 1961. Payload: 150 kg (330 lb). Gross mass: 3,284 kg (7,239 lb). Unfuelled mass: 1,084 kg (2,389 lb). Specific impulse: 444 s. Height: 2.60 m (8.50 ft).

Earliest lunar orbit rendezvous schemes involved use of one or more extremely lightweight, unpressurized lunar landers to take a single astronaut to the lunar service. The cryogenic design was estimated to gross 3,284 kg - to be compared with the 15,000 kg / 2 man design that eventually was selected. Propellant load estimated.

Crew Size: 1.
