I have 34 very detailed photos of a Black Brant 2 payload from 1965
If there are no objections and if the moderator OKs it I will post all 34 here

all are 225k in size or less

Of course you can post them. The admins may want them uploaded vs. hotlinked. If you hotlink all that might happen is to ask you to upload them. There also might be a limit on how many can be uploaded in a single post. If so, use multiple posts.

Now, where are da' pics!

drooling is admissible :smile:

This is the payload section of
Black Brant 2 Vehicle AD-II-25 ( II = 2 )
Launched at Churchill Range 19 March 1960 at 00.25 hours
very early in the am

It was the 4 fin version of the Black Brant 2

Thanks you... those are some interesting pics.
I was looking at the first set, and in particular the ones with the experiments for inside the nosecone. Look at the computers, etc... All that now could be done with an arduino or Android device. Wow.

notice everything is analog not digital

Heck a Cansat would probably have more computing power :)

A 1995 Motorola proto-flip-phone would have more computing power than the hardware shown in the photos.

Since we're talking about the Black Brant II, has anyone ever seen a color photo of the beastie? Every photo out there seems to be in glorious black and white.

Not to derail the train of vintage rocket pinups, but is there a way to title the thread so as to prevent unpleasant visits from IT/HR after a session of lunchtime forum browsing?

Not that that's happened yet, but I'm trying to look out for the future :/

Understood... I forgot about using that word at work during lunch might cause a stir

Administrator please feel free to remove "porn" and replace with " vintage "

Thank you
