S88-33693 (April 1988) --- This painting was used as a visual at an April 1988 Houston-hosted conference titled "Lunar Bases and Space Strategies of the 21st Century." Here, a Lunar Base traverese mission crew stands on the northern tip of Vallis Schroteri during an exploration mission to the Aristarchus plateau region. The crewmembers are looking into the 600-meter deep, 0.5 kilometer-wide inner rille which meanders its way along the floor of the outer rille toward the outlet of volcanic channels in Oceanus Procellarum 60 kilometers to the west of where the crew and the wagon-train-like traverse vehicles are located. The scene is a 150 degree panorama which extends from NNE to SSE. The crew and vehicles in this concept are located at 25.5 degrees north latitude and 49.7 degrees west latitude. The painting was done by Pat Rawlings of Eagle Engineering. A series of Lunar Base paintings were done on subcontract to, and under the technical and scientific direction of, Lockheed Engineering and Management Services Co. The work was sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Johnson Space Center.
