Interesting Websites / US National Archives
« Last post by Boxman on Yesterday at 10:35:26 pm »
The United States National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has its own site, as well as at the Flickr Commons and at YouTube, where it also makes selected materials available.

This week they posted on YouTube a short documentary from 1968 entitled "Bridge to Space," which focuses on Cape Canaveral and operations there primarily surrounding Project Apollo. Interestingly, the film was originally shot in 70mm Ultra Panavision "Cinerama" super-widescreen format. The footage on YouTube (according to the NARA site referenced under the video) appears to be from a 35mm anamorphic reduction print and could use some restoration, but it is in remarkably good shape. It would be wonderful if the original 70mm print could be restored and converted to 4K digital format, but that is probably a bridge too far at this point. The film features footage of the crew of Apollo 7 (Wally Schirra, Walt Cunningham, and Don Eisele) training in a Command Module simulator at the Cape, as well the launch of presumably one of the unmanned Saturn V test flights.

Ah, I was afraid of that.

Oh well, it's not worth picking up then.

Thanks for the info!

Is there a release date for this yet?

I can't seem to find one anywhere.
I just bought the kindle edition of this.

Lots of repos of original drawings, which is nice, but only a couple of them are new to me. Pretty skimpy on text and no sources are listed.

EDIT: Having done a few searches here, I dont think there are any new drawings in this work. A lot of the drawings appear to be taken from here.

Dunno why... that kind of cover makes me think about one of my favorite film scene ...

But I know it's bad to judge on the look... it may be very interesting inside.

The swastika is censored in france... and I dont see the bias here... And that's just a cover,maybe they will just tell the nuclear research in germany(they did it in ligne de front)... Dont judge a book from his cover please.
