Estes Space Corps Lunar Scout

SKU: EST7290

The Lunar Scout series of remote, robotic space probes was crucial to the success of the new lunar landing program of the late 2020s. This automated craft had a single, critical directive: map the moon's surface in exacting detail to identify prospective sites for the 'Second Giant Leap ½ as that series of lunar landing missions eventually become known. Designed to be inexpensive to manufacture and proven reliable after more than a dozen flawless lunar landing and mapping missions, Space Corps later adapted the Lunar Scout to explore Mars and its twin moons Phobos and Deimos.
