Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) Component Layout Blueprint
Built by Grumman in the 1960’s, six Lunar Excursion Modules landed twelve American astronauts on the moon. Designed to fly in the vacuum of space, it didn’t need to be aerodynamic. Its boxy shape gave it the moniker of “The Bug” or “Spider.” When disaster struck the crew of Apollo 13, LEM Aquarius was used as a “lifeboat” to return the astronauts home alive. Printed on 80 lb. stock, our Artifactory digital blueprint depicts the LEM as it was used in space with all four legs deployed. The blueprint shows exterior views of all four sides as well as some cross-sections. The callouts for the major components are also listed.
