Checking out the IMP
 

After gazing upon it's outer shell, I had to look inside. I grabbed the handle on the left side, gave it a twist, then tugged it open. It was built to military specs, so it's nearly indestructible inside.

It kind of amazes me you can get so close to something so groundbreaking. I have no doubt that someday an IMP will reside in the Smithsonian Institution. This experimental apparatus spawned the global information network that connects us all together. Its easily one of the greatest feats of the 20th century.

After we were done gazing in wonderment, we goofed around with the IMP (the Staff was pretty cool about it).
