Aries 1-B Shuttle Model

This is a museum replica made by fame Brit SFX model maker Martin Bowers of the Aries 1B Trans-Lunar Space Shuttle from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. This replica model Pan Am Nuclear Powered Aries 1B Trans-Lunar Spherical Space Shuttle transports, in the movie, Dr. Heywood R. Floyd (William Sylvester), from the International Space Station to the Moon to investigate a monolith that was deliberately buried on the crater Clavius by unknown aliens. The original model was used in the movie as the spacecraft extends its landing gear and sets down on a platform on the moon as dust billows and it descends underground to the main sub-surface hanger headquarters.
