7 thoughts on “Wordless Wednesday: We Have Cleared the Tower

  1. Click the picture to enlarge, it will redirect to flickr. Sorry about that.

    This is the interior of the command module from Apollo 7. You may remember that it never went to the moon, and was, in fact, launched without a LEM, but it was the first manned Apollo mission to clear the tower, after the fire that killed the crew of Apollo 1.

  2. I’ve GOT to get my sorry rear to an aviation museum where I can witness history like this up close and personally. I keep meaning to schedule a weekend in Dayton, Ohio to see the USAF Museum. Maybe this’ll get me to finally make it happen.

    I love the poignancy of this image. One can only imagine what it must have felt like to launch inside an extensively redesigned vehicle after the Apollo 1 accident.

    Guts personified.

  3. I’d have expected something more high-tech looking like you see in a movie. Those look like tanning beds or something along those lines…
