STEPS IN THE RACE TO
OUTER SPACE. This 30-foot high Unicycle is designed for preliminary
exploration of the Moon, once a base camp has been established. It's
entirely constructed of inflated, rubberized fabric, with the exception of
strengthening members, hatches and a few other items. Electricity for the
motors comes from solar batteries mounted in the "parasol." The cleated,
rotating wheel upon which the Unicycle travels is made of inflated tubes.
A spare wheel, carried around the body, acts as a bumper in traversing
narrow defiles. Living quarters make up a middle deck.
