A photo of a bit of NASA concept art, found on eBay. Dating from 1968, this shows an astronaut doing some geology (“seleneology?”) with a six-wheeled rover and a remarkably slim space suit.

  • Paper Kosmonaut

    A rover with -apparently- rubber wheels.

  • Also, the sleeve-cuffs make the space suit look more like overalls. Has he got a mechanical counterpressure suit on under that (helmet/neck details are iffy), or was the artist unhindered by considerations of reality?
