\"Advanced Gemini\" Lunar Orbit Mission Proposal Lucite NASA Spacecraft Project:
$425.00


As pictured - you\'ll receive the exact lucite pictured. Approx. 5.75\" x 4.75\" x 1.25\". Possesses 3 to 4 very minor chips (2 to 3 of these at the corners) and light scratches throughout. This item was likely produced circa 1964 while proposals were still being considered for missions to the moon by an advanced Gemini spacecraft. The depiction within the lucite of a Gemini spacecraft without an attached service module orbiting the moon may not be realistic, but the visualization was likely meant to promote the proposals of some proponents who wanted to extend Project Gemini to include lunar missions. These proposals were advanced as a means to accelerate and lower the cost to get America to the moon. The proposals were generally discouraged and ultimately rejected by senior NASA management in favor of proceeding with Project Apollo. Wernher von Braun was among those who staunchly discouraged these proposals as he didn\'t want such projects to divert attention and funding away from Apollo. That may in part be why one rarely encounters displays or promotional products like this from that period.The lucite was acquired as is but based on the two screw attachment points at the back, it was most likely attached to something, possibly a larger wooden plaque, at some point in its history. This is the only one I\'ve ever seen and it is quite rare. While they don\'t detract very much, I would encourage the new owner to have it polished to remove the scratches to provide it with the luster this rare item deserves.** If is assessing sales taxes on your purchase(s) and you want to try and avoid it, please contact me before making your payment.I have other NASA items currently listed.
