Man those pictures bring back memories of the fallout games...
Now I want to play them again.


You need to get re-acquainted with New Vegas, the only hint for Fallout 4 has been "The Legion were fun weren't they?"

That octopus sex though, amirite Slayer?

The one I thought was actually pretty cool was the rocket that would launch into the upper atmosphere, so people could skydive down -- since it was the most inherently ludicrous, yet we still managed to achieve it.

Humans. Can do anything.

The Picard twins were famous as high altitude (baloonist) and deep sea explorers.
The spherical capsule is a high altitude baloon gondola, similar to one launched from the Stratobowl in South Dakota, U. S. A. in the 1930's. The capsule was made of DOW magnesium alloy.

The man looking through a sheet of something at the sky is looking at a solar eclipse through a welder's filter. Today we prefer to view solar eclipses by pinhole projection.

Look up Lenin's Rolls-Royce half-track snowmobile limosine.

The text is about observing a solar eclipse in California. He is holding up an optical filter. Looks like an event in 1923, in particular September 10, 1923. The band of totality passed over southern California and the observatories there, the point of greatest eclipse was close by.

September 10, 1923 eclipse


Paraphrased something like "The astronomers in California observing the last total solar eclipse are not content merely with their monstrous and precise instruments of modern science, but also went up in aircraft to photograph and film the phenomenon"

I love this one, its my favourite



A medieval axe?
I cant think why he would need one 80 meters underwater!
But its good fun wondering.



Oil workers still use deep sea diving suits or "atmospheric diving suits". They'd do things like repair broken pipes, valves, cables. Using an axe might be necessary to cut through sea-weed, drift netting or anything else. So those vintage pictures aren't far off the mark:

This one is even stranger. It looks like the space-suit of some kind of multi-eyed alien. The combination of
lighting and detail are something that would win the monthly award for a 3D VFX magazine.

A torpedo that can leap out of the water and knock a specific person overboard? Why don't we have these?

I know, not the same thing, nor is it a tram...



Snow Removal Train

This is the giant snow blower train car that was used on the White Pass and Yukon Railway.

What a wonderful thread here. Things from the past need to be preserved and noone knows this better than a guy named Harlan Ellision.
Here is his very outspoken on this whole genre.
