Description

VERY LARGE MODEL OF THE SOVIET N1 ROCKET, ONE OF TWO EXAMPLES PRODUCED BY ENERGIA CORPORATION

Development on the N1 rocket began in 1959, under the direction of Sergei Korolev. It was designed to deliver a payload beyond Earth orbit, and ultimately to the Moon. The N1-L3 model would carry the L3 lunar payload, consisting of an Earth departure stage and a lunar landing assist stage, in addition to a single-cosmonaut lunar lander and a two-cosmonaut lunar orbiter. By November of 1967, a mock-up was complete and on the launch pad. The completed N1 was very slightly shorter than the Saturn V, but had a greater lift-off thrust, though as a result of technical difficulties, and a subsequent lack of funding, the N1 never successfully completed a test flight.
