S84-43855 (October 1984)--- An artists's rendering gives a possible preview of 21st century lunar base activity. A lunar surface crane removes a newly arrived habitation module from an expendable lunar lander. The crane operator would place the module on the flat trailer for hauling back to the main base. Other expendable landers (background) tell-tale earlier shipments as a buildup plan gradually progresses. The artwork was done by Patrick Rawlings of Eagle Engineering. PLEASE NOTE: This artwork was unveiled during an Octobrer 29-31. 1984 conference in Washington, D.C. titled Lunar Bases and Space Activities of the 21st Century. It was originally done for a NASA report titled Impact of Lunar and Planetary Missions on Space Station.
