Huntsville Space & Rocket Center 1982

Here's a photo journal of one of my first visits to the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama in the early 80s. You can see it's the 80s by my Ocean Pacific shirt from L.A.

Front of the building. Sorry, no pictures of the IMAX Theatre.

A Russian space capsule.

Inside the lunar module.

Miss Baker, the astronaut monkey, lived in the Rocket Center for years.

Star Wars influence.

My brother Tom in the moon buggy.

X-15. Awesome.

The Rocket Yard in the back of the museum. It's a history of American missiles.

No caption needed...

Goodbye from the nozzle of the Saturn 5!

Making of the Greyhound Jingle 1963

Here's a promo disc from 1963 with the making of the Greyhound Bus jingle. This was given out to employees and vendors of Greyhound. Listen to part 1 here, and part 2 here.  And special bonus, the orchestra is led by the great Raymond Scott!
