Air raid protection--what to do in your home. If you plan to use the cellar during air raids it is a good idea to put heavy paint on the windows. Flat black paint is best but if you put enough coats of any color on, it will keep the light from coming through. It is also well (and not shown in this picture) to use cardboard to shade the light and keep it from shining directly on the windows; the kind of cardboard that comes in shirts from the laundry is light-proof, but a little heavier kind will keep the glass splinters from flying if there is a nearby burst
Air raid protection--what to do in your home. This is not the way to spend the evening, but simply a handy place to go if bombs suddenly start falling nearby. A heavy, sturdy table will not only keep off falling plaster that may be shaken down by a nearby burst, but would even help to support beams if the upper stories should come down. A shelter such as this will give the rescue squads a chance to save you. One precaution: keep that table away from the window

Royal Air Force "Ventura"  bombers blitz Den Helder in daylight. "Ventura" aircraft of Royal Air Force bomber command, escorted by fighters, attacked the docks at Den Helder by daylight on February 12, 1943. Their previous visit to the Dutch port was January 23. Action photo taken during the attack shows many bombs bursting across the southern entrance to the naval basin--four of them in the inner haven (Naval). Hits were scored on the torpedo boat establishment and the torpedo workshops east of the entrance. Smoke arises from bombs which burst in a line across the railway in the southwest part of the harbor

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In a burst of light and flames, Space Shuttle Columbia lifts off from Launch Pad 39-B at 12:31 a.m. EDT. STS-93 is a five-day mission primarily to release the Chandra X-ray Observatory, which will allow scientists from around the world to study some of the most distant, powerful and dynamic objects in the universe. The crew numbers five: Commander Eileen M. Collins, Pilot Jeffrey S. Ashby, and Mission Specialists Steven A. Hawley (Ph.D.), Catherine G. Coleman (Ph.D.) and Michel Tognini of France, with the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES). Collins is the first woman to serve as commander of a Shuttle mission.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. --  In a burst of light, Space Shuttle Atlantis hurtles into the pre-dawn sky on mission STS-101 at 6:11:10 a.m. EDT. Silhouetted on the left are two American flags, hung from a flagpole near the Press Site bleachers. Media and spectators below have an unobstructed view across the turn basin, which reflects the fiery liftoff. The mission is taking the crew of seven to the International Space Station to deliver logistics and supplies as well as to prepare the Station for the arrival of the Zvezda Service Module, expected to be launched by Russia in July 2000. Also, the crew will conduct one space walk and will reboost the space station from 230 statute miles to 250 statute miles. This will be the third assembly flight to the Space Station. After a 10-day mission, landing is targeted for May 29 at 2:19 a.m. EDT. This is the 98th Shuttle flight and the 21st flight for Shuttle Atlantis KSC-00pp0648

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- Space Shuttle Atlantis appears to burst forth from a cocoon of smoke in the Florida marsh lands as it rockets toward space on mission STS-106. The perfect on-time liftoff of Atlantis occurred at 8:45:47 a.m. EDT. On the 11-day mission to the International Space Station, the seven-member crew will perform support tasks on orbit, transfer supplies and prepare the living quarters in the newly arrived Zvezda Service Module. The first long-duration crew, dubbed “Expedition One,” is due to arrive at the Station in late fall. Landing of Atlantis is targeted for 4:45 a.m. EDT on Sept. 19 KSC00pp1266

An In-Stri Breach is a special type of operation used to overcome and breakthrough unexpected or lightly fend obstacles. BRIGHT STAR is a multinational exercise involving more than 74,000 troops from 44 countries that is signed to enhance regional stability and military-to-military cooperation among the US, our key allies, and our regional partners. It prepares US Central Command to rapidly...

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - From a burst of fire and smoke, the Delta II launch vehicle races into the sky carrying the second Mars Exploration Rover, Opportunity.  The bright glare briefly illuminated Florida Space Coast beaches.  Opportunity’s dash to Mars began with liftoff at 11:18:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla.   The spacecraft separated successfully from the Delta's third stage 83 minutes later, after it had been boosted out of Earth orbit and onto a course toward Mars.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -  Workers in Hangar AE, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, meticulously clean the inside of a Boeing Delta fairing that will encapsulate the Swift spacecraft.  Swift is a first-of-its-kind, multi-wavelength observatory dedicated to the study of gamma-ray burst (GRB) science. Its three instruments will work together to observe GRBs and afterglows in the gamma-ray, X-ray and optical wavebands.  Swift is part of NASA’s medium explorer (MIDEX) program being developed by an international collaboration. It will be launched into a low-Earth orbit on a Delta 7320 rocket in October 2004. During its nominal 2-year mission, Swift is expected to observe more than 200 bursts, which will represent the most comprehensive study of GRB afterglow to date. KSC-04pd1528

Swift is scheduled to launch Oct. 26 from Launch Pad 17-A, CCAFS, on a Boeing Delta 7320 rocket. KSC-04pd1856
