As I live in Houston, Texas I can very much relate to these.  I was born in 1954 so I remember the era...  I have friends that live in Clear Lake and I drive right past the Johnson Space Center (JSC) when I go to visit them.

 

Great stuff! Thanks for posting the pics!  :waytogo:

 

Cheers!

-Bob F. :) :waytogo:

He still does. Leon is 20 and for some reason the framed moonwalker still sits on his table. He does not share his Dad's passion for old stuff, though.

With the skyline artwork on that cover I would guess it to be The Zeiss Planetarium , at the Hayden museum in NYC.

That's it for sure. This one was gone by the time I visited there while growing up in NY. There was another Zeiss there when I visited several times in the 70's and 80's.

That was the Hayden's  MK IV Zeiss Projector ( I never got to view under it) , But I was fortunate enough to view under the MK IV Zeiss Projector at Griffith Park Observatory in Los Angles , California  :bow:

This was actually the MK II Zeiss Projector. The MK IV was not installed until 1960 and this picture is from 1936. http://en.wikipedia....Earth_and_Space

I remember my mom taking my sister and I up every time they changed the program, I took the wife up and saw the one we watched retired in the new downstairs addition. I saw Saturn for the first time through the 12-inch Zeiss refracter. Amazing.

I havent participated much in the off-topic fora, but I saw this thread and had to drop in these pictures.  My Dad received this ashtray from Applied Health Physics Inc., sometime in the early 60's, possibly late 50's.

 

Of particular note is the CAUTION RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL label on the back......

 

It's been sitting on a shelf for 50 plus years....hopefully its not still active!
