S83-28322 (14 March 1983) --- This chart illustrates the routes taken by various vehicles as liquid oxygen mined on the Moon is transported back to Earth and ultimately used to fuel a variety of vehicles. Some would travel to geosynchronous Earth orbit, where communications satellites can be serviced or replaced. Other would fly the route between the Earth and the Moon, carrying liquid hydrogen to the lunar facilities and brining liquid oxygen back to the low Earth orbit facility. This is one of a series of concepts developed for the Johnson Space Center by Eagle Engineering of Houston. Pat Rawlings is the artist.
