Time Event
geek factor 5
Saw 2001: A Space Odyssey last night, and noticed that the lunar monolith is indicated on a shuttlecraft glass cockpit as 'TMA-1' which apparently stands for Tycho Magnetic Anomaly. I don't think it's a coincidence that the fifth generation Soyuz manned space vehicle, first launched in the early 2000s and the first expendable space vehicle with a glass cockpit, bears the designation транспортный модифицированный антропометрический.
