Mobile Geological LaboratoryThe Mobile Geological Laboratory (MOLAB) was built as part of the development of NASA's Lunar Roving Vehicle(LRV) program. NASA engineers and scientists studied a number of different concepts for vehicles to use on the lunar surface. This rover included an extensive geology lab in a pressurized shirt-sleeve environment. The MOLAB concept carried enough fuel and supplies to keep the lunar surface crew mobile for two weeks. With the elimination of Apollo long-duration lunar surface mission and tight weight restrictions the MOLAB concept was cancelled.
