Lunar Prospector Mission Model Kit
Item #: MODELKITLPM
Lunar Prospector Mission Model Kit The Lunar Prospector Space Craft Science Kit represents NASA's lunar orbiter that discovered water at the lunar poles. It mapped the whole Moon's mineral composition and gravity field, then made a controlled dive into an icy polar crater to end its mission on 7/31/99. The advanced design, laser-cut, recycled paper card stock model kit has lots of details in gold and silver metal foil, and color lithography. The assembled model is about 1/25 scale, measuring 30 cm (12 inches) overall. This is a relatively easy kit to assemble... the hard part is waiting for the glue to dry! Instructions are provided for assembling the kit in its lunar mapping configuration, or in its launch configuration.
