Glider

I do not even begin to understand what is going on here, but I can't stop trying to figure it out.

I dunno either, but now I want a Greenie Beanie.

No mountains to take off from, so take the hangglider up w/a weather balloon???

BE: I was trying to find out more about those, but they seem to have faded into the mists of time.

Steph: that's all I could figure, too.

Does it seem to you, researching these old pictures, that mankind has lost a bit of its wonder?

downtown guy said...

Actually, less than when I started. I mean, we've certainly changed what we wonder about, but only because we're expanding what we've found out. I mean, there are people living in space right now!

It looks like the glider is held onto the balloon by a wire hanger. This really spins my mind.

Tiny glider or biggest wire hanger of all time?
