From Wikipedia: The Johnstown Flood (or Great Flood of 1889 as it became known locally) occurred on May 31, 1889. It was the result of the catastrophic failure of the South Fork Dam situated 14 miles upstream of the town of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, USA, made worse by several days of extremely heavy rainfall. The dam's failure unleashed a torrent of 20 million tons of water. The flood killed more than 2,200 people and caused US$17 million of damage.
From BEA: Real gross domestic product -- the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States -- increased at an annual rate of 1.9 percent in the first quarter of 2012 (that is, from the fourth quarter to the first quarter), according to the "second" estimate released by the Bureauof Economic Analysis. In the fourth quarter of 2011, real GDP increased 3.0 percent.
The GDP estimate released today is based on more complete source data than were available forthe "advance" estimate issued last month. In the advance estimate, the increase in real GDP was 2.2percent.
From Dr. Barry Taff: In more simpler terms, the pasts information still exists and the future’s information already exists, although this doesn’t necessarily mean that the events of which their comprised physically exist beyond their precise physical moment within space-time.
It’s like our brain’s are small-scale models of space-time, which enables them to seek out and access information and energy at-a-distance. In essence, all of space and time contains all the information of space and time, whether the space be in your car, your home, your bathroom or your bed.
In a way, this would render physical space-time as being somewhat illusory as it’s what we’re designed to perceive in order to functionally live within this 4-D reality we call life.
Remember in science, your theory must conform to your data, not the reverse. There is one rather unsettling aspect to this type of informational distribution in space-time, in that it strongly suggests that the future is already there and may be as immutable as the past is.
What if we discover in the course of unraveling these mysteries that we are living in a determined, ordered, predestined reality? One in which we can no more alter the future than we can the past. A disturbing thought to say the least. I mean, what’s the purpose of life if we are all but puppets on cosmic strings that are controlled by forces beyond our comprehension.
From Wikipedia: Mariner 9 (Mariner Mars '71 / Mariner-I) is a NASA space orbiter that helped in the exploration of Mars and was part of the Mariner program. Mariner 9 was launched toward Mars on May 30, 1971 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and reached the planet on November 14 of the same year, becoming the first spacecraft to orbit another planet — only narrowly beating Soviet Mars 2 and Mars 3, which both arrived within a month. After months of dust-storms it managed to send back clear pictures of the surface. Mariner 9 returned 7,329 images over the course of its mission, which concluded in October 1972.
From Wikipedia: STS-96 was a Space Shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS) flown by Space Shuttle Discovery, and the first shuttle flight to dock with the International Space Station.

From Wikipedia: Apollo 10 was the fourth manned mission in the American Apollo space program. It was an F type mission—its purpose was to be a "dry run" for the Apollo 11 mission, testing all of the procedures and components of a Moon landing without actually landing on the Moon itself. Splashdown occurred in the Pacific Ocean on May 26, 1969 at 16:52:23 UTC, approximately 400 nautical miles east of American Samoa. The astronauts were recovered by the USS Princeton, and subsequently flown to Pago Pago International Airport in Tafuna for a greeting reception, before being flown on a C-141 cargo plane to Honolulu.
