Richard P. Speck went on to describe Micro-Space’s “Human Lunar Lander” saying it drew quite a lot of attention at this years XPC. He later added that “the displayed “Human Lunar Lander” is an eclectic combination of our production components and simulated parts to complete a mock up. But it is full size! Barely bigger than a telephone booth, this is a full scale Human Lunar Lander!”
