Another week, another spaceflight image for you to look at.
Below is this week's unique picture from the Flight International spaceflight
archive. Guess what's in the picture (giving as much detail as you can) or just
add an amusing caption, to find yourself the king(or queen) of all thing space.
AirSpace - more than just hot air
NASDA HOPE-X scale model
Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) model being prepared for testing in the ISAS/JAXA large-scale transonic/supersonic wind tunnel for PSP/TSP Pressure Measurement System SMAP demonstration.
Hmmm... Funny hats, bad hair, everything looks small and cheap
and an umanned vehicle - its got to be european
Sorry, Sir ..... but it is japanese .....
Do you not see the ISAS (Institute of Space and Astronautical Science) logo on the side of the fuselage ?
No HOPE then.....
They'd get a lot more hits if the link on Flight Global actually brought people here
Half the time the Forum link errors out too
Hey sorry about the delay to this answer but here we go:
This image dated 24 June 1988 shows engineers checking an unmanned spacecraft, 3.5m (11.4ft) in length and 500kg (1,100lb) in weight, at the former Institute of Space and Astronauticfal Science, which is now part of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, in preparation for the launching on a one-day experiment to collect data on flight stablity and control during supersonic speeds up to M4 as a preliminary step for future development of a spacecraft six times as large.
This week's image will come shortly. As for the links not working Angvz, many apologies, i will look into it now!!
