No bigger than a bread box. Not a hand tool but hands are used to operate it.

The funnier the answer the better. :mrgreen:

This is only a guess, but might it be a smoke generator?
If it is not that, I would go with a noise making device of some sort.
This is not a feeble attempt to get in two guesses in one post.
It is merely two very weak guesses and a poster too lazy to post twice.

1959 was the beginning of NASA's Mercury Program designed to put the first man in orbit. Prior to this feat accomplished in 1962, there were many unmanned robotic launches. Most everyone has heard of Enos the Chimp who in 1962 achieved orbit. prior to this there were some suborbital flights with other primates. But before they every considered launching a primate into space, they practiced with squirrels. It is a little known fact that Joe the red squirrel was launched into a suborbital flight aboard a prototype capsule. This first launch was a complete failure as the booster rocket exploded within seconds of the launch. The capsule was never recovered. The First two boosters of thr Mercury program are a testament to poor little Joe the red squirrel as they are named "Little Joe" and "Redstone". Apparently the capsule which housed joe was recovered and sold in a thrift shop and is now in the hands of an alcohol stove maker named zelph.

I thought Joe live, was adopted by alien space monkeys, and grew up dedicated to revenge on the human race. In 1972 he developed, using alien space monkey technology, a death ray designed to rain alien space monkey death on all human inhabitants of planet earth.

While in near earth orbit he fired up his death ray, aimed it at Cape Canavaral, pulled the trigger....and nothing happened. Apparently he didn't have a windscreen so the solar winds blew it out.

This is revision 2 of his death ray, notice the perforated windscreen down near the alien space monky death generator module.

He never did get to try it, lost space monkey funding, and retired to Damascus, Va.

russb and The Cheat are not lacking in humor for sure!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry but you're both WRONG, close but WRONG :mrgreen:

Joe Live has something to do with it though :?:

Most of you may not know this but NASA did have an alternate escape route for Joe. Capn Kirk was influencial in his escape. He hit the appropriate button to have Joe "beamed" down but unfortunately a solar flare occured at the same time and interferred with transfer. Joe's molecules were left in a suspended state for some. How he got back to earth is not known by me. Somebody else might know how he did it and might share the info with us.

It's a kayak turbine engine :D Saves on the rowing and whenever sharks appear, you just flip the booster switch and leave them in a swirl of turbulance.
