We aren't seriously discussing such a conglomerate of parts from toys (including
sprocket wheels and the wings, that look like those of the Citty Citty Bang Bang !), are we ?
And the text states, that it was test flying and was intended, amomgst other tasks as
a reentry vehicle ... ::)

You gents got it all wrong. It's the ultimate expression of the flexibility of that stalwart of computing, the now deceased, much mourned PDP11, the PDP15's great-great-granddaddy.

I'm surprised nobody noticed the obvious similarities.

You know, I worked at DEC for 13 years and that's the first thing I reflexively think of whenever I see "PDP".

I know at least one type of the PDP series from DEC, as we had one in the "digital
laboratory" of the university.
Problem here is just, that it doesn't make this flying thing more realistic. ;)
