'Lunokhod-2' (8EL N 204) - the second in a series of Soviet lunar remote-controlled self-propelled vehicles, planetary rovers 'Lunokhod' (Project E-8).
Was designed to study the mechanical properties of the lunar surface,
photographing and video of the moon, carrying out experiments with
terrestrial laser rangefinder observations of solar radiation and other studies.
NPO. Lavochkin Manufacturer
Start: January 8, 1973 06:55:38 UTC
Launch vehicle: Proton-K / Block D 259-01
Launch pad: Baikonur Pl. 81/23
Mass: 836 kg
Landing on the moon: January 15, 1973, (Mare Serenitatis)
The rover stood 135 cm (4 ft 5 in) high and had a mass of 840 kg (1,850 lb). It was about 170 cm (5 ft 7 in) long and 160 cm (5 ft 3 in) wide and had eight wheels each with an independent suspension, electric motor and brake. The rover had two speeds, ~1 km/h and ~2 km/h (0.6 mph and 1.2 mph). Lunokhod 2 was equipped with three television cameras, one mounted high on the rover for navigation, which could return high resolution images at different frame rates—3.2, 5.7, 10.9 or 21.1 seconds per frame. These images were used by a five-man team of controllers on Earth who sent driving commands to the rover in real time. Power was supplied by a solar panel on the inside of a round hinged lid which covered the instrument bay, which would charge the batteries when opened. A polonium-210 radioisotope heater unit was used to keep the rover warm during the long lunar nights. There were four panoramic cameras mounted on the rover. Scientific instruments included a soil mechanics tester, solar X-ray experiment, an astrophotometer to measure visible and ultraviolet light levels, a magnetometer deployed in front of the rover on the end of a 2.5 m (8 ft 2 in) boom, a radiometer, a photodetector (Rubin-1) for laser detection experiments, and a French-supplied laser corner reflector. The lander carried a bas relief of Vladimir Lenin and the Soviet coat of arms. The lander and rover together massed 1814 kg.
The model is created from many photos of the rover.
And with full-size models photo , and design drawings of
the Soviet journals.
I used to create all photos only what I could find on the net.
