Thought for the day

"Evil cannot create anything new, they can only corrupt and ruin what good forces have invented or made." -- J.R.R. Tolkien

When planning the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon, NASA thought of every possible detail, including a gloomy scenario: What if astronauts left something dangerous on Earth—and alien to science—the Moon germs?


Before Apollo 11 departed, NASA could not be positive that, if bits of dust or potential microbes returned home, life on Earth would be safe. Needless to say, accidentally setting loose a lunar plague on Earth's inhabitants would have erased all the good publicity received by the Moon's landing in the first place.


Collins took this photo of the Lunar Module, which had Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong with Earth in the background, during the Apollo 11 mission. This makes him the only person ever who was not inside the frame of the photo. Matter can neither be created nor destroyed.


This means that every human being who has lived to the point of taking this picture exists in at least some form, and every human being born since then is also in this picture, at least in some form. So even if you were born after this picture, the material you are made of is still on this picture frame.

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the Moon, ushering in a new era on space exploration. We are often subjected to the standard shots taken by Buzz Aldrin of the gray, rocky surface, with some faceless spacemen standing still and posing. That's why this picture, which is rarely seen, is such an immaculate piece of history.


The form of pure joy, accomplishment, and disbelief is a testament to what mankind can achieve. Aldrin snapped this shot of a teary-eyed Armstrong, moments after returning to the spacecraft and removing his helmet.

Mankind's way to the stars had its unsung heroes. One of them was Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov. His space flight on Soyuz 1 made him the first Soviet cosmonaut to fly into outer space more than once, and he became the first human to die on a space mission—the Soyuz 1 space capsule crashed after re-entry on 24 April. He was killed when it happened. , 1967, due to failure of the parachute.


This photo titled "The Kiss of Life" by Rocco Morabito, taken in 1967 by J.D. A utility worker named Thompson was hired by co-worker Randall G. Champion giving mouth-to-mouth after fainting after being exposed to a low voltage line.


They were doing routine maintenance when Champion brushed off one of the low voltage lines at the top of the utility pole. His protective shield prevented the fall, and Thompson, who was climbing under him, quickly approached him and resuscitated him mouth-to-mouth.


These two men are Manusmriti Das. Manumission is the act of a slave owner freeing his slaves. He just borrowed clothes and hats for the picture. This is a drawn-out picture and a statement about estrangement rather than a picture of a woman with her slaves.


To answer the question of why they are dressed but bold - this is part of the old custom of using shoes to denote class, status or wealth. It was highly customary that slaves were kept barefoot. Some countries have even said that slaves always live without shoes.


COINTELPRO, an abbreviation for Counter-Intelligence Program, was the illegal brainchild of the F.B.I.’s first and longest-serving director, J. Edgar Hoover, whose obsession with communism and “subversion” allowed him to justify violating the civil rights and civil liberties of millions of Americans.

The term Dust Bowl was coined in 1935 when an AP reporter, Robert Geiger, used it to describe the drought-hit south-central United States after a severe dust storm.


Historically, the Dust Bowl was a period of severe dust storms that caused much damage to the ecology and agriculture of the American and Canadian basins during the 1930s.


For decades, rumors circulated in Russia that Joseph Stalin had a "twin" who took his place during certain situations. Decades after Stalin's death, Noah finally decided to speak up.


Felix Dadaev, a former dancer and juggler, was ordered to work in the Kremlin as Stalin's body double. For more than half a century, Dadaev remained silent, fearing the death penalty he dared to open his mouth.
