I'm sure you have seen it, but if you have not, the excellent movie Apollo 18 features one of these as a practical full-sized replica. I am stunned at the quality and realism of your work.

I did not like it due to it being another one of those clichéd, overused and over done horror and sci fi films that is about the fight for survival rather than the exploration. Seriously there are WAY too much of those types of space films. For once I just to a sci fi film that is about the exploration and testing new technologies that helps humanity to work in space as well as make PEACEFUL first contact with aliens and we work together to help each other rather than the fight for survival. I am sick and tired of those films. The only films that are exactly or atleast close to what I want are 2001: A space Odessy, 2010 Odessy Two and the most recent one is The Martian. Yeah in The Martian a huy is stranded on Mars and has to try and survive but there is no fighting against aliens and the Earth is not in danger. But it still ha a sense of exploration in it that I want sci fi films to have.

Yeah, i agree with you completely - there hasn't been a good movie about space exploration for years. Everything that comes shows how scary space is. And how space exploration can be disastrous.  There's just a few movies set in space that aren't horrors or disaster movies.  - As you've mentioned, 2001 and 2010, The Martian to some extent, The Abyss - it's not really set in space, but still, there are peaceful aliens and the underwater setting is kinda otherworldly. And Contact, one of my all time favs. We really need some more good and inspiring space exploration movies. Hope that will change really soon, if not, I'll really need to step in and do something about it :D

"Well, who would had thought that we would get here before the Americans?"

"Nobody knows, comrade. One thing I do know, however, is that now the Americans are going to over-compensate for it. How much time do you think before they get to Mars?"

"... I give it ten years. Maybe fifteen."

I guess this lander carries only one cosmonaut, since it is smaller than the Apollo LM.

BTW - Great work!!!

What I couldn't understand was their reasoning to only build a moon lander capsule to hold only one man.
What a lonely trip and dangerous one if there be an accident and no one to back you up.

Much less mass that way. The Soviet LK lander was much lighter than the American Lunar Module.

They badly wanted to put a cosmonaut on the Moon, but just didn't have tech powerful enough to push a large two man lander. Btw, Soviets worked on another concept for lunar landing mission, LK-700, which would directly land two cosmonauts on the Moon (without return vehicle waiting in orbit, they would land a rocket and go back to Earth directly from lunar surface). Unfortunately, both lunar landing concepts failed and were abandoned shortly after NASA succeeded with Apollo.

Well, it may be a good thing the LK-700 never got of the ground; the rocket it was supposed to use would have been prone to failing and releasing over 9 million pounds of toxic, carcinogenic fuel all over Khazakastan.

Technically those dish antennas should be pointing back toward the earth, otherwise he'll get lousy reception of the game.

I wonder if the Soviets had continued with their lunar program would they also be the focus of a conspiracy theory that they were faked as the Apollo program has been.

Reply
:iconmacrebisz:
MacRebisz Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
well, not really, there is plenty of scattered light bouncing around which can lit up surfaces in shadows. On photos, yes, they "could" be black, it depends on exposure parameters, as we've seen on Apollo photographs, but using some "imaginary camera" for this picture, which can be human eye or hdr camera, shadows won't be completely black.

And, even in many Apollo photos, when they metered in the shadows, they got some of the back-scatter from the surface. The most famous example being the shot of Buzz on the ladder during Apollo 11.
