Re: What is it? CXVIII



I initially thought that too, but there aren't suit controls on a helo. More likely a high-altitude MACH+ jet (X-1? U-2? SR71?)

nope. A spacecraft. give-aways (from switch labels): 3-axis autopilot -- "roll", "pitch", "yaw". RCS -- that's the maneuvering thrusters then, at the bottom of the console are 'suit flow' thingies. *TWO* of them.
So, we've got a two-man spacecraft, with labelling in English. There are precisely _two_ vehicles that fit in that classification -- A Gemini capsule, and a LEM. My money says Gemini. Especially, since I found a picture of the LEM interior (<

I'm impressed. My first thought was LEM because of the "radar" switch; but I didn't have the persistence to investigate further.

Henry Spencer summaries
Letter from Karl Henize of JSC, commenting on an AW&ST report of Neil Armstrong's Gemini glove still being in orbit and still being tracked. Wrong in three ways. First, the lost glove happened on Gemini 4, while Armstrong flew on Gemini 8. Second, such a relatively large and light object, in the fairly low orbit the Geminis used, would have reentered within a year. And third, the Gemini 4 glove was never tracked well enough to appear in the tracking catalog. ... ---------------------------------------------------------------------- http://www.islandone.org/SpencerAvLeakReports/AvWeek-930920.html

That isn't what I was looking for, there was something extra on them, something common but not normally found on gloves.

LOL, not exactly sure what that means but I'm positive it's not what I had in mind. The gloves were designed and made with something functional added to them, to be used by Armstrong in some of his work.

It must be the safety pin his mother used to pin them to his spacesuit so he wouldn't lose them.
