Default Space - Frank Tinsley Lunar Unicycle

A rather old design from Frank Tinsley for a Lunar Unicycle! Or perhaps more properly, a monowheel.

The wheel around the middle is actually a spare tyre for the main wheel.

One source image, on set of ortho views, and one polished picture, with the unicycle finding the Luna-9 soviet soft lander, (This composited onto an Apollo panorama).

I came up with a different design for the solar panel parasol, as the one in the picture looked more than a bit clumsy...

Very nice! It would be a lot of work to get that spare tire off.
Those who say it can't be done,
should stop interrupting those of us who are busy doing it!
