Manned Orbiting Laboratory: Secrets of a US Military Space Station (Infographic)

Announced to the pubic in August 1965, the Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) was described as a technology-development platform that would aid manned and unmanned space efforts. The project also had a top-secret mission: MOL was to be the first U.S. manned spy satellite. The program was terminated in 1969, before any operational flights had occurred.

The story is too old to be commented.
