Voskhod’s Globus IMP: Mechanical Symphony.

The “Globus” was gorgeously intricate mechanical computer employed by the Russian space program from the very beginning. Ever since Gagarin’s first manned spaceflight and until 2002 this cute instrument had a prominent place inside each one of the Russian manned spacecrafts: Vostok, Voskhod and Soyuz.

That earth globe is such a jewel. From the other side is certainly more unassuming.
