If the space race had taken a few different turns, we might have ended up with a historical exhibit that looked like the one cooked up by the American Dream Technical Institute
Currently on display in Portland, Maine. Stroll on by for a look at the full-size spaceship
and other ephemera of the non-existent do-it-yourself space movement of the 1950s.
All artifacts are helpfully explained by text panels
, which (somewhat less helpfully) were taken from a 1959 book on space, translated into Russian with Systran, then pushed back through Systran into English.
