Default DEEP-Cold how different things could have been

This is an interesting look at the things that could have been had not McNamarra killed both the Space and AirForce budgets

http://www.deepcold.com/deepcold/dc..._movie_big.html

the rest of space history would have been changed had these programs not been cut.

After watching thatshort clip, look about the rest of the site.

Red face Deep Cold Movies

Hi Artu: Stumbled across your "thread" and decided to check out the movies. All I have to say is awesome!! At one time I wanted to be an Aeronautical Engineer in high school. Thanks for info on "what could have been."

Well there would have been no space shuttle if it hadn't been for Nixon and McNamarra...

Robert

P.s. The space shuttles impetus was as a means to steal Soviet satellites. It was something the Russians were aware of and protested behind the scenes. It was the motivation behind Buran. There are rumors that on a couple of the secret DoD shuttle missions, they did actually rendevuez with soviet orbiting targets and take photos and parts! In retaliation and protests against SDI, the soviets would fire lasers into the crew cabin temporarily blinding the Shuttle astronauts.

Yes, just like that!

Nice wrap Bob, do you have a copy of that?

I'm using the Semroc Mercury capsule instead of the Gemini. Security provided by Smilin' Joe Fission.

I have all the decals I used but they are not on one file.

The fin decals and the black stripe that goes around the back are on one file. The fin is actually white with just the edges painted black. The white pattern on the fins is the clear portion of the decal and the black squares are part of the fin decal.

The flags were from a decal sheet I made of just flag markings and the other decals were on a separate file.

If you want to PM me with your email address, I'll send them along.

He came from a local supermarket here in Australia about a year ago. I also scored a Blinky!
