Apollo 7 launch

The launch of Apollo 7, the first manned Apollo mission, October 11, 1968.

A C-135 aircraft, flying at more than 35,000 feet, photographed the launch of the Apollo 7 space vehicle. The image, taken from the ocean side and at such a high altitude, gave the appearance that the launch was from beside the VAB.

Aliens?

No, it’s not a flying saucer, it is the domed top to a 70 foot long vacuum tank at the Lewis Research Center’s Electric Propulsion Laboratory, Cleveland, Ohio.

The three technicians shown here in protective clothing had just emerged from within the tank where they had been cleaning in the toxic mercury atmosphere, left after ion engine testing in the tank.
