MMU

Posted by
Per (Central Florida, United States) on 27 August 2013 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

I started by taking out the wires, then this, then that and got here.

Manned Maneuvering Unit built by Martin Marietta back in the 80's.

I live on the Space Coast of Florida and enjoy making photographs of things that, for whatever reason, interest me. You'll notice that a lot of my photography is "space" related (goes with the day job), but I photograph just about anything.

If you would like to leave a comment please feel free to do so. All comments and critiques (good or bad) are welcome and appreciated. Thanks for looking.

@Bruno F: I kept thinking of the famous photo of Bruce McCandless operating the MMU in space in 1984. Thanks :)

@Dimitrios: Thanks. Our motto for human spaceflight is "failure is not an option" so we spend a lot of time getting things right :)
