It’s interesting to note the development of the Moon vehicles at this point. By 1964, most of the major changes to the CSM and LEM had occurred with only minor tweaking left in the coming months. The most notable one here is the circular EVA hatch on the front of the LEM, originally intended to dock with the CSM after ascent from the lunar surface. This was eventually changed to the rectangular, EVA-only hatch due to weight constraints. Also, the CSM is of the Block I variant that was being promoted more than the Lunar Block II vehicle.
Jack Dawson… Penniless artist who wins a ticket onto Titanic in 1912, attends a first class dinner, develops a taste for the finer things in life, pockets the Heart of the Ocean, survives the sinking, pawns the diamond, spends the following ten years building his wealth and in 1922 moves to West Egg as Jay Gatsby… Millionaire with a shady past and fear of swimming pools.
In the heart of the mythical Elqui Valley in Pisco, surrounded by the Andes Mountains, 500km north of Santiago in central Chile, lies a magical place that allows for star-spangled dreams beneath the clear pure sky. Combining stargazing and specialized astronomic tours with night-time horseback riding, meditation and even tarot readings, Elqui Domos is a hotel quite like no other.
It was completed in 2005 to fulfil its owners’ desire to observe and enjoy the grandeur of the one of the world’s most star-filled skies. It is one of only seven astronomic hotels around the world and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere, offering breathtaking views of the magic skies draped over the Elqui Valley (the valley is renowned for its sharp, clear skies, as it happens to sit under one of the clearest atmospheres in the world). The lack of rain and pleasant weather all year round set the perfect conditions for astronomic tourism, where guests can gather to enjoy a unique chance to liaise with the stars.
Woah!!!! Hopefully no one was bothered to make that. If not holy shit, amazing. I hope I can see stars like that one day
