Chelomei LK-1 Chelomei LK-1 circumlunar spacecraft. The 2.8 m diameter Apollo-type reentry capsule was mounted atop a cylindrical service module, which provided power and boosted the spacecraft on a translunar trajectory. The large solar panels would have provided considerably more power than Korolev's competing Soyuz 7K-L1 configuration. Credit: © Mark Wade. File Name: lk1big.jpg. Image width: 504 pixels.

LK with Block D LK with Block D Lunar Crasher stage. This is the configuration that would have braked until just above the surface, when the LK would have jettisoned the Block D, extended its legs, and maneuvered to a soft landing on the surface.

LK Block E The Block E landing/ascent stage of the LK, viewed separately from the LPU landing gear. Note the clean aerodynamic shape and the engine guards, necessary to divert exhaust gases and debris away from the engine nozzle during landing.

LK Crew Station A view of the actual fully-equipped LK crew station. Significant equipment is present that is not in the mock-ups that can be viewed today. Note the collimator/aiming reticule over the landing viewport; the cabin crowded with pilot restraints, pipes, and equipment racks. It is clear why accomodation of more than one cosmonaut in this space was not feasible. File Name: lkcabcrw.jpg. Image width: 413 pixels. Image height: 311 pixels. Image size: 43,605 bytes.
