Today In History.
I'd noticed that thread like this thread wasn't here on TTA, so the purpose of this thread is to put events in history that have happened on here

e.g. Today : 3rd June, on 3rd June 2016, Muhammad Ali passed away. The former heavyweight champion passed away after spending few days at a hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, U.S. following respiratory complications.

A date, Western Europe will be more familar with. On june 2nd 1967, the student Benno Ohnesorg was killed by a police officer in West Berlin, protesting the visit of the Shah. It was the defining point of what was later called the '68 movement as well as the leftist terror organisations movement 2nd june (Bewegung 2. Juni) and the RAF (Red Army Faction), which kept especially Germany on high alert for the ensuing 2 decades.

Quote:1965
An American walks in space
One hundred and 20 miles above the earth, Major Edward H. White II opens the hatch of the Gemini 4 and steps out of the capsule, becoming the first American astronaut to walk in space. Attached to the craft by a 25-foot tether and controlling his movements with a hand-held oxygen jet-propulsion gun, White remained outside the capsule for just over 20 minutes. As a space walker, White had been preceded by Soviet cosmonaut Aleksei A. Leonov, who on March 18, 1965, was the first man ever to walk in space.
Implemented at the height of the space race, NASA’s Gemini program was the least famous of the three U.S.-manned space programs conducted during the 1960s. However, as an extension of Project Mercury, which put the first American in space in 1961, Gemini laid the groundwork for the more dramatic Apollo lunar missions, which began in 1968. The Gemini space flights were the first to involve multiple crews, and the extended duration of the missions provided valuable information about the biological effects of longer-term space travel. When the Gemini program ended in 1966, U.S. astronauts had also perfected rendezvous and docking maneuvers with other orbiting vehicles, a skill that would be essential during the three-stage Apollo moon missions.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

RE: Today In History.
I'm reminded of the Firesign Theater skit, a radio program set in the future:

He: And who was born today, Connie?

She: Why, nobody!

He: No, I mean in the past before they changed the water.
