Ever wonder where the writers of Star Trek - TNG came up with the Captain's last name? On this day in 1931 Piccard and Knipfer made the first balloon assent into the Earth's stratosphere. That same Piccard also made the first dive to the deepest part of the ocean at a different time. A true explorer who "went where no one has gone before."

10 years later, today, the British sank the German battleship Bismark. You may have seen the movie on late night television.

Ever had plumbing problems at your place? They never seem to occur during normal business hours do they? Usually at night or over a long weekend when nobody is available. Think of what the crew on the ISS must be experiencing, in zero-G no less. Yuck.

A new entry for my LLDE file.

Oh, that French attempt to set the world skydiving record has been put on hold. His balloon left without him.

Over The Limit?
