1965 – The First Space Rendezvous:

“Rendezvous was first successfully accomplished by US astronaut Wally Schirra on December 15, 1965. Schirra maneuvered the Gemini 6 spacecraft within 1 foot (30 cm) of its sister craft Gemini 7. The spacecraft were not equipped to dock with each other, but maintained station-keeping for more than 20 minutes.”

NOTE: The first space docking occurred March 1966.

Lunch – October 20

1910 – The hull of the RMS Olympic is launched from the Belfast Harbor. This is the older sister to the RMS Titanic and the RMS Britannic. You can see her outline here, or take the trip to Belfast to the Titanic Belfast museum and see it in person (well worth the trip). The RMS Olympic was retired from service in 1935 after 257 round trips across the Atlantic.

Lunch September 22

1910 – Mrs. Violet Melnotte-Wyatt opens The Duke of York’s Picture House and is the oldest continually operated movie house in Britain, Brighton to be exact.

1616 – The first public and free school is opened in the town of Frascati, about 12 miles outside of Rome, Italy, founded by Joseph Calasanz. It should be noted that he was a bit of a radical for the time period and this reflected in both whom he thought deserved an education and what that education consisted of.

Off to someplace new: Ohana Kitchen
