Ever since I was a very little kid, I've been interested in the 60s Space Race. Now that I'm grown up and there are resources on the Internet documenting where these relics of the heroic age of manned space flight currently reside, I've had the opportunity to visit nearly all of them.

Along the way, I've also visited relics of several other heroic ages: World War II, the Cold War, the missile race.

And I've taken pictures of them all. Lots of pictures. So many pictures that I haven't yet found the time to post them all (the artifacts that I have posted can be accessed through the buttons above). There are literally tens of thousands of additional pictures (at least several thousand of which are good enough for other people to look at :-) which I will be sorting through and posting in the coming days, weeks, months, and years.

Here, grouped by museum, are major artifacts which I've photographed, but have not yet posted. If you're particularly interested in one, drop me a line and I'll see about getting the photos of the artifact prepared for the web. Don't go crazy and request a whole bunch of photo sets, because I already have too many to prepare and I'll just wind up with too many to prepare all over again.
