The model that engineers imagined when designing the Orbiting Geophysical Observatory. Photo/Lofty Ambitions

In a quiet corner of Leatherby Libraries is a handful of historic artifacts from the shelves of NASA, which is thinning out some of its relics and making them available to museums and universities.
