Description


Amazing vintage MOL flight vehicle model by McDonnell Douglas. The model, which features an impressive Titan IIIM launch system and stacked Gemini B and MOL, stands approximately 21.5″ tall, and is set on a 6.5 x 3.5 wooden base with affixed plate. In fine condition. From the personal collection of Charlie Dry, a former Apollo test astronaut and research engineer and senior scientific analyst at NASA. Part of the United States Air Force's manned spaceflight program, the MOL was developed from early concepts of manned space stations to be used for NASA survey purposes, but was ultimately canceled during the height of the Apollo program in 1969, when more cost-effective unmanned reconnaissance satellites were found to achieve similar results. NASA's space station program went ahead full-blast in the mid-1970s with the advent of Skylab.
