This is a prototype of a nuclear canon...you heard me right a NUCLEAR CANON. The idea was that you could fire a nuclear warhead several miles and wipe out an advancing force with a single shot. Thank God these were never used.

The Apollo 12 command module "Yankee Clipper", the second of six spacecraft to transport astronauts who landed on the moon!  Astronauts Charles "Pete" Conrad, Jr., and Alan L. Bean were the 3rd and 4th men on the moon while  Richard F. Gordon, Jr. flew the CSM.

A Saturn V's F1 engine.  Producing over 1.5 million pounds of thrust this is the most powerful rocket engine ever built.  It took five of these engines to get an Apollo spacecraft 2/3 of the way to space.

I dont think that anyone is updating the F1.  However, NASA is currently modifying the space shuttle main engine for use with its new rocket the SLS

Sunrise in Sequoia National Park. The air was filled with smoke from nearby controlled burns of the forest creating beautiful crepuscular rays of sunlight through the trees. This was the last picture my camera took before it mysteriously started malfunctioning...I am not happy with Canon right now.

This FW-190 was flown by the famous Nazi fighter ace Rudi Linz who claimed to have shot down 70 allied aircraft. While defending some german ships against allied aircraft he was shot down and killed in February of 1945. His plane is currently being restored and will one day fly again!

True beauty. The business end of Space Shuttle Endeavor. Each of those engines produces up to 512,300 lbs of force and can be gimballed +/- 10.5 degrees

Stars in Sequoia National Park home of the largest (by volume) trees in the world. The sky is hazy because of a controlled burn of the forest happening near by filing the air with smoke. Sequoia trees are flame resistant and their pine cones need the heat of fire in order to release their seeds to plant new trees.
