The Virgo III lunar lander "Valiant 12" was a spacecraft before the Great War.

Background

On November 14, 1969, the Virgo III landed on the moon.[1] The crew left behind a flag that was later picked up during the final manned flight to the moon in 2052.[1] The flag survived on the surface for that duration due to special materials designed to withstand the harsh environment of space, now on display at the Museum of Technology.[1]

Appearances

The Virgo III is mentioned only in Fallout 3.

The flag is from the old 'Valiant 12' Virgo III Lunar Lander that touched down November 14, 1969. It's remarkable condition can be attributed due to its construction; the flag is actually made of special materials to withstand the harsh environment of space."
