Dragging this thread kicking and screaming back to something approximating a topic, has anyone ever noticed the fronts of Airstreams with the wraparound windows resemble the Dicovery?

Back around late 63 or early 64, my Uncle, who lived in PA., took me over to the Math Department of UPA. There was a UNIVAC system in the basement that they were working and, I saw those neat V.T. in vertical rows glowing `plus, the mercury memory drum~It was located in an opening big enough to walk inside of. KEWL~
About all I remember of it was that it was huge and, took up the entire basement level. That's it.
Slipping back into the 21th century...lol
