Airlock Hatch Notes
This is a 1:60 diagram of the airlock attached to the Lunar Base
habitat's single hatch. The three hatches are arbitrarily labeled:
- A - between the moon base and the airlock; opens into moon base
- B - between the airlock and the LTV (before separation); inward toward
- C - at the base of the airlock T; opens inward toward airlock
Hatch C provides an EVA
route while the spacecraft are en route to the moon, before they separate.
It also provides an ingress route while the stack is docked to another
spacecraft in low earth orbit. (The other vehicle might be Soyuz capsule,
space station, or docking
adaptor on a Space Shuttle Orbiter.)
There will be a similar hatch at the front of the
Lunar Transfer Vehicle so that we can seal up
the LTV once the rest of the stack leaves. See
