For some reason this photo of Vic sort of reminds me of his cats
id: 45789
It's a race to go karts for racing!

Zooooom

Amanda takes the corner at speed
id: 45821
Get outta the way, Vic. I got people to pass

Got to lean into the corner

Will is a blur of speed
id: 45824
Amanda is about to get bumped out of the way if she doesn't give up that inside line
id: 45825
Dave is blowing kisses to the camera!
id: 45826
I win! I got lucky because Dave won the first race and I won the second. Since his score went up after the first, my win was worth a few more points
id: 45827
Amanda slid in just in time for this shot
id: 45828

id: 45886
Topaz was impressed
id: 45887
Buzz was sleepy
id: 45888
This.. is my life
id: 45889
It's easier to take photos of Anthony when he doesn't know you're there!

And Buzz!!
id: 45906

Old timey telegram.. thing!
id: 45957
I think this was a trans-Atlantic telegram line
id: 45958
Telstar! An early communications satellite
id: 45959
If I understand correctly, you put a card in that thing on the right, and all the dials change to indicate what data is on it
id: 45960
Vacuum tubes, for that warm analog computer feel
id: 45961
"Yes, this is Dog"

On July 20th, 1969, the Apollo 11 Lunar Module "Eagle" landed on the moon, with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on board. Mounted in the window was a 16mm film camera.
id: 46044
At the beginning and end of the film reel was some exposed film used to load onto the reel. Normally they would be discarded.
id: 46045
But these film scraps were distributed to Kodak engineers as thanks for helping on the Apollo 11 program. Decades later one engineer sold his scrap..
id: 46046
.. and now I have a piece. It also came with this snazzy notebook!
id: 46047
Certificate of authenticity
id: 46048
Only 144 of these pen sets were made
id: 46049
Seeee, I told you!
id: 46050
Two fancy pens!
id: 46051
See that little black speck? That's a piece of 16mm film that's been on the moon

But not just on the moon.. on Apollo 11. The first manned landing. How amazing is that.
id: 46053
Thanks, Toapz!
