Space-age refrigeration, 1968


To be fair, we WERE in the space age in 1968. So whatever refrigerators looked like at the time, they were space age refrigerators.

Just think how much cooler the Apollo program would have been if they had faux-wood-paneled all of the command modules and lunar modules, etc. Of course to be REALLY cool they’d need to equip them with some of those state-of-the-art Frigidaire Power Capsules from the ad.


Beats hell out of the avocado green appliances of the 70’s.


Burnt orange kitchens to make an ironic comeback - you saw it here first.


I think we actually HAD this fridge in my house when I was a kid.

State-of-the-art, Apollo defined it. Fridges will have caught up when they’re powered by fuel cells.

Wouldn’t it be simpler to keep your food outside, in space?
