As a fun aside, one of the PR plants, as well a PDP-8e and some board
assembly, has a brief cameo in the Mystery Science Theater 3000 short
"Progress Island USA."  I've cued up the scene at the time marker

Although I've seen that short a dozen times, it was only just now that
I noticed the Perkin-Elmer building, too.

Don - what was the deal with the UFO parked out front?
