Now that's cool. A story worth researching.
I can't help but feel that the author of the plaque's inscription has (or had) a wry sense of humor.
100 years later, Brother and I, at ages 4 and 6, watched this launch and had the stamp in our collection.
If you read Poe, he wrote that some kind of steerable balloon flight would be the prime means of air travel in his near future.Of course, he wrote what he saw.Apparently, they actually tried it.PS Welcome back, KY Liz. Hope you feel a little better.
With the balloon's position, this plaque looks like a man's folded shirt.
AN, ann... AN historical plaque. sheesh.
OK. That explains it.... Why the spaceship on "lost In Space" was named the "Jupiter II". I always wondered what happened to the Jupiter 1.
Meh, he was just looking to get a reality show of his own!
Just yesterday I was just at the Udvar-Hazy Center, the annex of the National Air & Space Museum at Washington Dulles International Airport and I checked out the ballooning section, as is my wont, because I think they should do more on the history of ballooning.And then Althouse posts this. Althouse, stay out of my head!
