In commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the NASA Lewis Research Center, a time capsule was dedicated on January 23, 1991. (On March 1, 1999, the Center was renamed the NASA Glenn Research Center.) The nine-foot metal sculpture stands in front of Glenn's Administration Building, surrounded by the U.S., NASA, and Ohio flags in a landscaped setting on three circular concrete walkways. The time capsule itself is contained within a highly-polished stainless steel sphere on a cast aluminum pedestal. A metal band sweeping out from the sphere symbolize human outreach into space.

DuPont 200th Anniversary Time Capsule Is Sealed and Installed   [New Window]
Article by; The Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration NEWS

The 8-cubic-foot, stainless steel capsule was filled by Justin Carisio of DuPont Public Affairs and Dan Muir of Hagley. The contents were placed in DuPont Tyvek envelopes or wrapped in Tyvek sheets. After the lid's screws were tightened, a vacuum was drawn and nitrogen gas injected to provide a slight positive pressure, completing a patented deacidification process that will render the life of paper 20 to 40 times longer than untreated paper. The capsule is guaranteed for 500 years.

Even educated people blurt criticism, such as University of Kansas history professor Dr. Curtis Dandridge. He said "the capsule's dullness is a reflection of the time from which it came". Would this be the case had it been left alone, future generations will never know.

"A deep sense of disappointment gripped the citizens of Atchison, KS, Tuesday, when a 60-year-old time capsule unearthed from the site of a demolished library was found to contain a bunch of useless old crap."

"The capsule large wooden crate bearing the words, "For The People Of The Future, So That They May Come To Know Us" is believed to have been buried in 1939 during the dedication of the just-built Atchison Public Library. Earlier this month, as the library was torn down to make room for a new Steak & Shake, demolitions workers came across the capsule, which had been sealed in the building's cornerstone."

"Though the capsule also bore the instructions, "Not to be unsealed until 2939 A.D.," civic leaders decided it should be opened as soon as possible." -[Copyright 2002, Onion, Inc.]-
