The Soviet LK Lunar Lander was intended to home in on a Lunokhod rover, which would survey the landing area, and make sure it was safe. It would then act as a beacon so the lander could home in accurately.
I studied astronomy at University College London, but failled to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I am currently on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digitals using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Photoshop Elemnts, Affinity Photo. I also ejoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, aqnd others. View all posts by Nick Stevens
