Today, 8 February, is the 170th birthday of Jules Verne, the writer
who described the first manned space flight to the Moon.

The launch pad was a site in Florida known to contemporaries as
"Stone's Hill".

This message is off-topic only in the sense that SEESATTERs weren't
around yet to witness the event.
