Forty years ago today

I came across this photo digging around on flickr looking for shots of amazing spectacles for a presentation. An hour later, the presentation no further progressed, I now know all about The Mercury Jo story and one man's passion for sending toys aloft.

Maybe it is the large dose of space exploration nostalgia, brought on by the fortieth anniversary of man landing on the moon, but I love this stuff. I particularly like the video footage he has shot with cameras attached to the rocket.
