MOL Update #6

July 19th, 2012 by Andrew Cochrane

Well, it seems that it is indeed a fantastic time to be interested in the Manned Orbiting Laboratory.  We are beginning to see more and more new documents and first hand stories of the people who made the MOL come out of the “Top Secret” shadow.  As has happened with several notable 1960′s government programs over the past few years, the MOL is finally old enough that people can start talking about it.  This week Dwayne Day released a new article revealing many tantalizing new details about the craft and its camera.  This appears to be the evidence required to finally settle the vertical vs. horizontal debate, unless they changed things later than these documents! It’s maddening sometimes…

As new documents are released, our picture of what the MOL astronauts were training to do becomes more clear, and honestly it was a very ambitious and somewhat dangerous mission.  If they had flown the MOL, I’m not sure it would have gone smoothly- there were so many unknowns about human spaceflight at the time and the station was jam-packed with new systems.  But that is the kind of things that good stories are made of :)

    Link exchange is nothing else but it is just placing the other person’s weblog link on your page at
    suitable place and other person will also do same in support of you.

    However, having the electronic persona of one of our roosters crow tweett every time a hen laid an egg decorating
    didn’t have actually the preferred impact.
