Time: Cold War Calculators

Those who still remember slide rules from the time before pocket calculators or learned flying a plane before GPS devices became so common will love this site. Others who remember the atrocities of the cold war might have a different approach to these relics from a time we all hoped that it would have long passed…

But whatever approach or understanding for that time you might have the web site Cold War Calculators – a site dedicate to radiac calculators slides – might show you some new “instruments” seemingly necessary during this dark period…
