The Lockheed Astrocommuter was to use an early version of the Saturn 1-B as a launch vehicle. Viewing for the pilot was be provided by a periscope-like device, and it was intended for use as the logistics vehicle for the Lockheed 1963 Space Station. Although the engineer who designed it was confident that the vehicle could be developed and made operational in a short ammount of time, his project never gained much interest from NASA, the USAF, or even from his superiors at Lockheed.
