Art Director:
  • Ken Adam

Purpose:
  • to launch Hugo Drax's Moonraker rockets, carrying his "race" of specially selected people into outer space

Description:
  • Secretly constructed slightly hexagonal launch facilities throughout the world to accommodate the simultaneous launch of his entire Moonraker "fleet." (The better to avoid detection)
  • His facilities are buried underground from the prying eyes of "spy" satellites...and Earth-bound spies!
  • The configuration of each launch bay is such that several control rooms can be extended for an unobstructed view of the shuttles pre-launch.
  • To avoid damage to the control rooms they can be moved "flush" with the facility's walls during launch sequence.
  • Perversely, Hugo Drax has set up conference areas in the blast deflectors below each Moonraker rocket nozzle—as can be seen below (should he be prematurely "called away" during a meeting, be sure and note where the Exits are!)
