Atomic Cold War Missiles Nuclear Weapons


EDITORS COMMENTS
Dominating the approach to the main exhibition hall at the Farnborough Air Show is the awe-inspiring Blue Streak. Originally designed as a formidable 2,500-mile range missile, this colossal structure has now found a new purpose as Europe's potential launching pad for space satellites. Standing tall at an impressive height of 61 feet and 6 inches, and weighing a staggering 92 tons, Blue Streak makes its grand debut in front of eager spectators at this year's show organized by the esteemed Society of British Aircraft Constructors. This print captures the essence of technological prowess and innovation that defined an era overshadowed by atomic fears and Cold War tensions. The mirror strategically placed at the base of this magnificent launcher allows visitors to catch a glimpse into its intricate mechanism, further enhancing their fascination with this engineering marvel. As we delve into September 1961 through our Memory Lane Prints collection, we are transported back to a time when military might was symbolized not only by nuclear weapons but also by groundbreaking advancements in aerospace technology. Let us appreciate how far we have come since then while acknowledging the significant strides made in peaceful exploration beyond our planet's atmosphere.
