SK  4, 15, 2019
Owen Garriott W5LFL was the 1st Amateur Radio Op. to transmit from space. I remember hearing him load and clear. I was one of the thousands of earth based stations calling him but I was not lucky enough to complete a contact. I did send a SWL card to him and received one back from him. He will go down in Ham Radio History..... Jack WB9OTX

Apr 15 - 1959 - Come Softly To Me

RMS Titanic - Apr 15 1912

RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Of the estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died, making it one of modern history's deadliest commercial marine disasters during peacetime. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time she entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. She was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, chief naval architect of the shipyard at the time, died in the disaster. Titanic was under the command of Capt. Edward Smith, who also went down with the ship. The ocean liner carried some of the wealthiest people in the world, as well as hundreds of emigrants from Great Britain and Ireland, Scandinavia and elsewhere throughout Europe who were seeking a new life in the United States. The first-class accommodation was designed to be the pinnacle of comfort and luxury, with an on-board gymnasium, swimming pool, libraries, high-class restaurants and opulent cabins. A high-powered radiotelegraph transmitter was available for sending passenger "marconigrams" and for the ship's operational use. Although Titanic had advanced safety features such as watertight compartments and remotely activated watertight doors, it only carried enough lifeboats for 1,178 people—about half the number on board, and one third of her total capacity—due to outdated maritime safety regulations. The ship carried 16 lifeboat davits which could lower three lifeboats each, for a total of 48 boats. However, Titanic carried only a total of 20 lifeboats, four of which were collapsible and proved hard to launch during the sinking.

USS Thresher (SSN-593)

On 10 April 1963, Thresher sank during deep-diving tests about 220 miles (350 km) east of Boston, Massachusetts, killing all 129 crew and shipyard personnel aboard in the deadliest submarine disaster ever. Her loss was a watershed for the U.S. Navy, leading to the implementation of a rigorous submarine safety program known as SUBSAFE. The first nuclear submarine lost at sea, Thresher was also the first of only two submarines that killed more than 100 people aboard; the other was the Russian Kursk, which sank with 118 aboard in 2000.

Clear cache in Google Chrome

I did a web page and named a photo, like xxx.jpg It was then
deleted after a week, then a few weeks later I uploaded a
photo with the same name to the same web page.
Viewers of the page started calling telling me it was showing
the older photo. When I looked at the page it was correct
displaying the new photo. I told them to type F5 and if this
does not display the the correct photo then you must clear
the cache. Here is how:

Open Google Chrome browser
Type: shift+Ctrl+delete
At the top of the pop-up window pull down how far back in time
try 7 days first, then further back if that does not work
Then Scroll down
Put a check mark in the box that you want to clear
Probably only the Images and Files, Don't clear anything that
you don't know what it is.
Then click "Clear Data" at the bottom. Close the window and
reload the page in question, Do you see the new photo ? If not
Go back further in time. or maybe "All Time"

What Can It Do? EMP bombs

Photo from Fema
EMP bombs do not cause casualties directly. The blast happens much too far away from people. Their power comes from interfering, disrupting, or damaging electronic equipment. That could mean power grids going down, cars and planes losing power, computer systems going berserk, and possibly even losing emergency backup power at facilities like hospitals. It sounds pretty scary, and EMP blasts are a significant threat, but the effects are largely untested and exaggerated through pop culture and inflammatory claims by politicians.
