Pinterest and Google Image Search are the best places to find images like this.
Go to:
https://www.google.com/advanced_image_search
And set the filter to search only for images higher than 2000x2000 or something like. Bing is good too but usually it finds the same images as Google.

Those aren't monitors dumbass. Before you call fake think for a second.
Those are just some panels with indicators on them, the lines/tables on them are actually painted. The panel on the right clearly has a hinged cover that opens towards the right, making it look "wide"

The FUCK is that thing on the table?

It clearly looks like a sectioned model of a sphere-cone re-entry body, with 3 sub-objects inside. It's not a match for any of the KH-1 through KH-9 film buckets. It's not a match of Apollo or any other manned capsule. It's not a MIRV container (they just sit on the bus after exiting the atmosphere, and are themselves biconic rather than sphere-cone bodies). It doesn't match any other sample-return mission capsules I can think of (like Genesis or Stardust), It doesn't match any planetary probed like the Vikings or Pioneers.
I can only guess it's some sort of cancelled sample-return vehicle project or some Apollo Applications thing.

The photo is from 1965, so calm down. Some changes happened between then and the first mission.

I'm old, so what strikes me about this image is the reminder that when I was a kid computers were all about text. Glowing letters on a dark background.

I remember when graphic interfaces started to creep into the mainstream and for a minute it felt like the future was something you could touch.

Excelent pic. What is the source? This looks like something I'd have seen in National geographic in like, 1981. Sory would be something like "the dawning silicon age" and the caption would be "Sally Jenkins of Lexington, KY types up a term paper on her home computer. She'll save her work to a 'diskette,' which she'll turn in to the school's media lab to be printed onto paper."

I was born in the late '70's. I remember my dad buying computer magazines in the early '80's which published BASIC programs back then. You'd sit the typing out the code to see what it did. Eventually, you learned to write your own code. Learning to solder properly was also useful. Not because you wanted to but if you were into computers or any kind of electronics, it was a necessary skill. Some chips weren't socketed but soldered to the board.

"The Calutron Girls were a group of young women, mostly high school graduates who joined the World War II efforts in Oak Ridge, Tennessee in 1945.

Although they were not allowed to know at the time, they were monitoring dials and watching meters for a calutron, a mass spectrometer that separates uranium isotopes.[3] The enriched uranium was used to make the first atomic bomb."

"Calutron Girls, photographed by Ed Westcott, at their calutron control panels at Y-12. Gladys Owens, the woman seated in the foreground, did not know what she had been involved with until seeing this photo in a public tour of the facility fifty years later."

Woefully, the point here is not to desperately grasp at straws through attempting a pitiful schoolyard mockery of an individual's vernacular my dear peon. People who don't care about the rules have this amazing, incogitable ability to ignore them. It is, as a matter of concrete fact, a sad reality for you that bitches who bitch will purposely receive the exact thing they were bitching about. Enjoy some content as compensation for your infantile whimpering.

Look for Ezra Stoller commission on IBM 702 Machine, 1955

I would post it myself as I had it as wallpaper for ages, but I'm unable due to low resolution (yeah I'm a n00b) and I'm frankly in a hurry.

Great thread tho, thank you.
