The Dark Wall song video lead-out.
Misasa Bridge song video lead-in.

MAN still looks at service medal in his hand.

MAN puts medal back in his pocket. He picks up a single sided 8.5x11" bound printout. He goes back outside and starts walking down the sidewalk.

MAN stands on NW corner of Plum and 11th in Hutch and looks across street at Cosmosphere. MAN crosses street and goes inside. He looks long at the Blackbird. He looks long at the B-52 pilot seat. He stands by the green Redstone nuclear warhead. He reaches out and touches its metal.

THE END
 


NOTES

The Redstone rocket was merely a glorified version of the V2.

"Red" and "Stone" are interesting. They put me in mind of some verses.

Revelation 8:15 - flaming censer thrown to Earth
Revelation 8:7 - hail and fire mingled with blood
Revelation 8:10 - star falls to Earth and water turns to wormwood
Revelation 9:1 - star falls to Earth and bottomless pit is opened
