Sorry about the delay, but with 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
..... I guess .....
Well it has a "programmer" on board so it must be a launch vehicle for sending dead geeks where no geek has gone before....
Here's the answer you have been waiting for:
"This image shows NASA's Biosatellite spacecraft, a recoverable vehicle for microgravty experiments. From 1966 to 1969 the US space agency launched three missions in the Biosatellite series. A total of six flights had been planned. The first mission in the Biosatellite series, Biosatellite I, was launched on 14 December 1966, from Cape Canaveral by a Boeing Delta rocket. The scientific payload, consisting of 13 select biology and radiation experiments, was exposed to microgravity during 45h of Earth-orbital flight."
This week's to follow!
