Wonderful architectural shots! Love the creativity of the last one - both in the shooting and in the interpretation

Savoche, what a great theme and entries!

These were taken a few days ago at the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, Ks.
1. Titan Rocket - bottom engine detail and flame pit. Q7 and 02 lens, F3.2 1/80 sec ISO 200. Titan II Gemini perhaps.

2. Cosmic Calling Card (5 made). One of these reached the Lunar surface in 1959 as a Russian bid to win the space race.
Pentax Q7 , 01 lens, F2.8 1/125 sec, ISO 400. Night HDR mode.

3. Red Thunder: the RD-107 Rocket engine. Pentax Q7, 01 lens, 1/13 sec, F1.9 ISO 3200, Night HDR mode.

Thanks, another set of great entries! The inscription on the Calling Card says "yanvar" - without having looked it up I'd guess that means they launched it in January '59. A very fascinating time in our history.

Thank you, for the language interpretation! I have discovered a mystery.

I did some research and found this: Soviet Spacecraft Pennants

it seems this sphere could have been made for the Luna I mission.

Link to my fuzzy description pic: http:///www.pentaxforums.com/forums/members/27077-chemtech/albums/12094-fuzz...ture112595.jpg

The wording of the description could be interpreted as" like" the one from the Luna II mission.

Several sites that have a sphere pic from the Luna II mission show the January date. Hmmmm.

In the near future I'll check out the one at the Eisenhower Center. I'm curious which one Khrushchev brought with him to give the President.

I think you are right. I found this site showing a (not too good) picture of the Luna II spheres with the inscription "сентябрь" (Sentyabr/September). The site has quite a lot of technical information about the mission.

A wonderful demonstration of the close-up capabilities of the GR - a camera I instantly fell in love when I first laid hand on it. Hard to comprehend how I could manage without it for so long
