Historic Space Systems has acquired thousands of engineering drawings, or blueprints, of historic US manned spacecraft detailing control panels, hatches, seats, structures, and other features.
- The same drawings used in making the actual spacecraft.
- Reveal the exact dimensions and configuration of each part of the spacecraft.
We use the drawings in our unique archive to design exhibits with exceptional detail and accuracy. Vehicles currently
- Apollo Command Module and Service Module
- Lunar Module
- Lunar Roving Vehicle
- Space Shuttle
- Manned Maneuvering Unit used in early Space Shuttle operations.
The results of this design technique can be seen in our high fidelity exhibits, software simulations, and
simulator enclosures. Note the accurate details and dimensions in these exhibits, made possible through the extensive use of spacecraft engineering drawings.
