Swindon Works Hooter Operator 1936

The hooter was a set of steam whistles that called employees into work, and signalled the end of the working day. The operator sounded the hooter by turning a wheel that released steam at high pressure, and sounded through the whistles on top of the hooter house

Apollo 16 lunar rover, artwork

Apollo 16 lunar rover. Artwork of the US astronaut John Watts Young (born 1930) driving a lunar rover on a performance test run on the Moon's surface. During this mission, Young achieved a lunar wheeled vehicle speed record of 18 kilometres per hour. Apollo 16 landed two astronauts in the Descartes Highlands for just under three days, from 21-24 April 1972. The other crew member for the lunar landing module (Orion, upper right) was US astronaut Charles Duke, who filmed this scene. Young and Duke carried out three excursions on the lunar surface, and collected over 90 kilograms of lunar rocks
