Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen is 70 years old today.

Bruce Springsteen was born in New Jersey. After seeing Elvis Presley perform
on The Ed Sullivan Show, he saw himself  growing up like him. His mother saw
his potential and bought him his first guitar for $18 in 1956; that started his
lifetime affair with the guitar. The nickname of ‘Boss’ stuck to him for his task
of collecting the band’s nightly pay and distributing it among the band.

JOINT MISSION TO THE MOON SUGGESTED

Image result for JOINT MISSION TO THE MOON SUGGESTED BY    JFK ON SEPTEMBER 20, 1963 IN 1963 BY JFK
President John F. Kennedy addresses the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Sept. 20, 1963. Kennedy spoke for what
would be his last address to that body.

An optimistic and upbeat President John F. Kennedy suggests that the
Soviet Union and the United States cooperate on a mission to mount an
expedition to the moon. The proposal caught both the Soviets and many
Americans off guard.

In 1961, shortly after his election as president, John F. Kennedy announced
that he was determined to win the “space race” with the Soviets. Since 1957,
when the Soviet Union sent a small satellite–Sputnik–into orbit around the
earth, Russian and and American scientists had been competing to see who
could make the next breakthrough in space travel.


President Kennedy closed his speech by urging, “Let us do the big things together.”

On this  day in 1947, a United States Army Air Forces balloon crashed at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. Following wide initial interest in the crashed "flying disc", the US military stated that it was merely a conventional weather balloon. Interest subsequently waned until the late 1970s, when Ufologists began
promoting a variety of increasingly elaborate
conspiracy theories, claiming
that one or more alien spacecraft had crash-landed and that the
extraterrestrial occupants had been recovered by the military, which then engaged in a cover-
up
.

In the 1990s, the US military published two reports disclosing the true nature
of the crashed object: a nuclear test surveillance balloon from
Project Mogul.
