    What I wonder is if the strange looking capsule the Russians had was equipped with a heat shield, or was it just such a "cannon-ball" of so much iron that it couldn't burn up, just on account of the mass and thickness of it. Stange-looking capsule, for sure. And if it entered window-side-down, that would have been all she wrote.

    The complete shere was covered with asbestos shielding. I'm not sure how they managed the issue of the windows.
    The sphere seems to be orientated by its center of gravity.

    Asbestos? I wonder if Russia today has as many asbestos lawyers advertising on TV as we have.

    Uh, the 500EL is electric

    Hasselblad printed a little booklet for one of the anniversaries and that was the cover shot
