So, guys: this is great. I should stop being surprised about the wild coincidences that have happened along the way with this project, because there have been too many to count, but this takes the cake. This is Renatae and Fred. We've been buying Christmas trees from them for a decade, but I never asked what they did for a living. They showed up today at the museum with a beautiful little rocket nozzle that Fred had machined back when he and his wife were suppliers for Rocketdyne in the 1980's. They bought some of their titanium from Wah Chang during that time! So cool!! #albanyraremetals#albanyoregon#albanyregionalmuseum#history#rocketdyne#spaceindustry#spacerace
Per questo #spacefriday ho pensato di raccontarvi una storia. Un aneddoto che ho letto spesso nel magico mondo dell’internet e che merita di essere raccontato, in un certo senso. La storia narra che quando gli americani iniziarono a mandare i primi uomini nello spazio, negli anni ‘60, si resero conto che le penne non funzionavano a gravità zero. Per questo spesero milioni di dollari in ricerca per inventare una penna che potesse funzionare durante le missioni spaziali. Nel frattempo i sovietici usavano delle matite. Questa stronz.. ehm.. questa storia è solo un mito, ma come tutte le leggende metropolitane mette radici in fatti realmente accaduti. Qual è la verità, dunque? Nel 1965, durante la missione Gemini 3, si scoprì che John Young, uno degli astronauti, aveva portato con sé un panino. Nonostante fosse autorizzato a farlo, ci si rese conto che le briciole fluttuanti all’interno dell’abitacolo non andavano molto d’accordo con la strumentazione di bordo figuriamoci le mine delle matite. (che conducono elettricità n.d.r.) Quando il pubblico venne a sapere che le penne a bordo della missione costavano 128$ ci fu un isteria generale. Il modello senza le modifiche per poter maneggiare la penna con i guantoni costava solamente 1,75$. "Se la NASA comprava penne a questi prezzi chissà su cos’altro sperpera i nostri soldi!" Nel frattempo, Paul Fisher, proprietario della Paul Fisher Pen, aveva inventato una penna in grado di scrivere ovunque, sul burro, sott’acqua e nello spazio. La pubblicizzò come "Space Pen". Si dice che le sue ricerche siano costate un milione di dollari. Non sappiamo se sia un dato veritiero ma il fantomatico prezzo della penna spaziale deriva da qui. Alla fine la NASA comprò 400 di queste penne. E i sovietici? Si resero conto che le mine delle loro matite potevano spezzarsi e causare cortocircuiti, quindi.. comprarono anche loro la penna di Fisher! Ma niente prezzi milionari: sia gli americani che i russi pagarono le

Color lithographed fold-out 1961 #news map published by "The Evening and Sunday Bulletin," Philadelphia, more than 56 years ago!.. http://ow.ly/YQeg50hMvRB This map opens to 27" x 19¾" and was compiled by Rand McNally. It was published in the early months of 1961 during the Space Race — a competition between the Soviet Union and the United States for dominance in spaceflight capability. A map of the world on Mercator's Projection shows the "probable" route of Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, who became the first human in space and the "possible" route of Mercury astronaut Alan Shepard who became the first American in space. Other maps show world tension points, including the Caribbean, where Cuba was drifting toward communist control; Berlin, "the number one point of friction between East and West;" Southeast Asia, where French Indo-China had recently been partitioned into Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia; and Africa, where the struggles in newly-independent Algeria and the Congo were the focus of United Nations deliberations. "The Philadelphia Bulletin" was the largest circulation newspaper in Philadelphia when this map was printed. It ceased publication in 1982.
