These are two Vela satellites in pre-launch processing. Part of the Vela Hotel project, the satellites monitored the Earth for the telltale signs of an atomic blast. Designed to monitor global compliance with the atomic testing ban treaty of 1963, the satellites of Vela Hotel found something peculiar - numerous gamma ray emissions coming from what appeared to be the Earth.As time went on and more bursts were detected, it was discovered that the gamma ray emissions were coming from far reaches of the cosmos, not the Earth or the solar system. These were the first detections of the most violent events in the universe - Gamma Ray Bursts.
