The Air Force ROTC unit at Oregon State University was established in 1949. The goal of the Apollo Project at Oregon State University was to construct a three-man space simulator and train a crew for a final 48-hour simulated flight. According to a report in the 16 January 1962 Barometer, the crew would conduct test flights during which they would apply navigation principles to maintain a prescribed course of flight. The simulator was constructed of aluminum and plywood.
