52 years (and 3 days) ago


Время первых — Трейлер #2 (2017)

50 years ago a Russian made the first space walk. They had a couple of problems. It's a miracle they survived. I mean 10 G's of force? Motherboard has the story. Now they have made a movie about it (trailer above). It will be released next month. Via Posthip Scott.

Interior view of the Voskhod descent module.  Note the simple control panel and Vzor porthole to the left. (Novosti Press Agency). I suspect all the orange stuff is spray on foam insulation.

Nicely done Blog entry!
I remember I was 12 at the time, out in the orchard with Rusty chasing rabbits, I thought I heard "Fuc*ing space suit!" and spied a glitter high overhead. Rusty paused and looked skyward, barked, then went back to chasing rabbits.
