    "America’s first black astronaut, Air Force Maj. Robert Lawrence Jr., finally got full honors Friday on the 50th anniversary of his death. Lawrence paved the way for Guy Bluford, who became the first African-American in space in 1983, Dr. Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space in 1992, and Charles Bolden Jr., a space shuttle commander who became NASA’s first black administrator in 2009. Next year, the International Space Station is getting its first African-American resident: NASA astronaut Jeanette Epps."

    Oy P-chem. Thermodemonics was bad enough, but quantum satanics was worse. Kicked my ass right back into the organics lab.

    Yep, I had to take Thermo and Quantum as required classes, barely made it. Almost 40 yrs later I still have an occasional "fuck up" dream about that. LOL

    ^^^ We called those R2D2 with a boner. I wasn't a GM, but had to memorize the capabilities of it when I was giving tours to civilians. Impressive firepower.

    Nothing like a finely tuned Sea Whiz to liven up a party.

    SHARPSBURG, MD — In the back corner of Antietam National Cemetery, a good 25 yards from any other plot, are six graves. They are the final resting places of African-American soldiers who fought in World War I — segregated even in death. Saturday afternoon, they were first to be honored during the cemetery's Wreaths Across America ceremony.

Kyle Carpenter received his bachelor’s degree in international studies on Monday, according to The State newspaper. He was recognized during the ceremony, leading to applause from the entire crowd."

    "Elinor Otto, widely known as the last Rosie the Riveter, joined the head of Air Mobility Command on a C-17 flight over California Monday to educate and inspire the next generation of airmen. Otto, 98, who has worked on every C-17 Globemaster ever built, had never actually flown on one. She finally got that opportunity when she spent more than three hours on a Globemaster III piloted by Gen. Carlton Everhart, the head of AMC, near March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County. With them were about 30 Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets who were given the opportunity to see some of the Air Force’s missions."
