Mercury-Redstone Gallery


My wife and I tend to see aerospace artifacts differently: I see valves, access doors, and other components, while she sees curves and artistic lines of rivets.

The preceding 46 photos are representative of how I saw the Mercury-Redstone; here's a photo representing how she saw it.

Picture 1 of 3.

That being said, I can't help but point out the LOX and alcohol fill and drain valves (at the left and right of the photo) and the way the fin is attached to the tail unit.
