A whimsical imagining of Grumman's 1962 Apollo Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) design concept, playfully converted into a bubble gum machine. I affectionately call this early design configuration the "Bubble LEM" due to its bulbous helicopter-like cockpit and large curved windows.

The series shows the LEM enjoying the simple pleasures of blowing a bubble, larger and larger, until ... POP!
