AGENA-B UPPER STAGE MODEL.
Model of the upper stage of an Agena-B upper stage, 17 inches tall, on 10 inch diameter wood base. Plaque on base reading "Agena USAF-Lockheed Space Vehicle."

The Agena-B upper stage was used during the 1960s as an orbital injection vehicle for Midas and other satellites, and as an intermediate stage booster for Ranger and early Mariner space probes. Made by Lockheed, it was fitted on the Thor or Atlas-D launch vehicles that became known as the Thor-Agena and Atlas-Agena. Most notably, Agena-B also served as the Corona photo reconnaissance satellite which then flew under the cover name Discoverer.
