This morning’s Oregonian newspaper had this story (sorry, they forbid linking to the photo) about a newly-uncovered schoolroom chalkboard that still bore a lesson from 1969: in neat block lettering, the board says:
Apollo 10 is on the way to the moon.
It has three astronauts aboard.
They will look closely at the moon.
They will splash down on Sunday.
That this amazing simple quote survived (behind the now-worn-out green chalkboard that replaced the old one) is fascinating. However, my favorite part isn’t that quote: it’s this little list visible on the far right side of the chalkboard:
I’m gonna get a reprint of this picture for my office, just so I can use this list in my own planning.
