First men on the moon.
4 February 2008 | by (Washington State, USA) – See all my reviews

The first manned moon landing is a four man mission headed by Col. McCauley. They touch down and cut the engines. Moments later a landing leg sinks into the lunar soil and the ship begins to tip over. McCauley reignites the engines, sending them up again and saving the ship. On the second landing the ship remains stable. The crew exit the ship and descend a ladder to the surface. While checking out Mars through a telescope, a crewman collapses. He had been injured during the sudden relaunch and kept quiet about it because he didn't want to compromise the mission or miss out on exploring the moon. His condition is serious. A broken rib and punctured lung.

The Earth launch rocket and moonship are Chesley Bonestell designed miniatures. The moonship looks nothing like the Apollo LEM but it launches the same way, using its base section as a launch pad. The winged return vehicle blasts off on a slender booster rocket, minus the exterior tanks used for landing. The return trip is not shown.
