Gigapan with Canon S5IS


gigapan user Dogshrink found a NASA link describing the wind tunnels here:
history.nasa.gov/SP-440/ch6-15.htm Will open in a new tab or window
The first diagram is of the "Ames 3.5-foot hypersonic wind tunnel" and shows the four large vacuum tanks which are just to the left of this, and these high pressure tanks.

Straight back are two more vacuum tanks, the one in front is being dismantled.

To the right is the 'cyrogenic separation tower and auxiliary equipment building'

These are shown in more detail in this gigapan:
