The United States considered detonating an atom bomb on the moon during the late 1950s as a demonstration of the nation's Cold War might.

The secret project, innocuously titled "A Study of Lunar Research Flights," was never carried out. But its planning included calculations by the astronomer Carl Sagan--then a young graduate student--of the behavior of the dust and gas generated by the blast.

Seen above is a Soviet bayonet attack under Lieutenant Khusainov's unit who rose from the trenches for a strike against german positions during the battle of Moscow, 11 November 1941. The picture was taken by Dimitry Baltermants.

While we are busy generating smiles at the Make a Wish foundation charity event taking place at the Silverdale Gun Club; please allow the 🇨🇦CGV to give you a look at one of Canada's greatest firearm law anomalies..The beautiful and incredibly cool VALMET rifle. Pure 🇨🇦CANADIAN LEGAL AK47 Non-restricted goodness!!!😉😉😉👍 I can't think of a single cold war collector who wouldnt want a taste of this flavour in their inventory. I'm certainly one of them. Originally sold in Canada for about $600 the prices of the only exception in Canadian law to the AK47 prohibition; now command prices that sometimes exceed $4000. Their values just keep climbing as they continue to be recognized as fine collectibles now. If your looking for one "HAPPY HUNTING" because usually the owners have to pass away for one to.come up for sale. No one wants to give them up!😉😉😉👍 What does that tell you? #valmetrifle #coolguns #ak47 #finland #ammunition #coldwar #sickguns #nonrestricted #prohibitedfirearms #rifle #762x39 #firearmcommunity #firearmphotography #gunloversunite #vintagecollectible

Made it to the Bay of Pigs! US forces never landed on Cuban soil themselves in 1961 so we may have been one of the biggest groups in a while. We passed several billboards like these, extolling Cuba's win against the U.S. invasion, on our drive south from Havana to Playa Larga and finally to Playa Giron. It reads, "Here was fought a decisive combat for victory." So interesting and exciting to step foot on this hot region of Cold War history. There's a Bay of Pigs museum with an English docent who will take you through the battle region's history...through Cuba's eyes. Today, the Caribbean blue here is the stuff of post cards and perfection. You need to visit. #modernmagellan #bayofpigs #invasion #cuba #playa #giron #larga #coldwar #unitedstates #history #amazing #birthday #beach #roadtrip #friends #travel #traveller #lifewelltraveled #youcantoo

These birds never flew at an air show. A formation of them never started a NASCAR race or the Indy 500, and, the general public never filed into their base for an annual 'open house'. In fact, these birds, spent most of their lives out of sight, deep underground. This photo was taken at the United States Air Force Museum when the intercontinental ballistic missiles were stored outside. Today's modern equivalents stand in silos along with the missile combat crews (MCC), a team of highly trained men and women, often called Missileers, whose immense responsibility is to ensure the missiles are ready to launch at a moment's notice. You can bet these crews are every bit as dedicated as those flying their B-whatevers and sailing their SSBN-somethings. Some might say, well sure, but sitting in a hole in the ground isn't very sexy. That's okay. They don't do their job to look good. They do it to protect the families and friends they go home to every time they climb through that last hatch at the end of their tour. #HalifaxAuthor #Halifax #usaf #unitedstatesairforce #usairforce #icbm #coldwar #intercontinentalballisticmissile #silo #missilesilo #writer #amwriting #author #daniellloydlittle

So... this was the most fun escape room ever. Running around a cold-war bunker looking for clues! Freaking awesome.

Campus Loves no. 1 (1949): Probably one of the most flagrantly sexist plot lines I have encountered in comic book research. Basically, careers and academics--beyond college preparing women for marriage--are not for women. This woman has a PhD and is a professor, who, as one of her students informs her, would be much happier if she just got married. Her class if "fixed" by a man who read three articles (that she somehow missed) on the subject that she has spent years researching. She marries this man and is much happier with herself. The end. ⠀

Asked the girlfriend if she would like to go a food fair today. It just so happened to be that the food fair was at @rafmuseum Cosford so of course I had to have a look at the aircraft. There was even a fly past by a spitfire 😀 #rafcosford #rafcosfordfoodfestival #coldwar #planes #aircraft #avgeek #history #vulcan #vulcanbomber #hawkerhunter #ilovejetnoise
