We’ve all read stories of of amazing feats, whether it’s engineering, science, or just an amazing human interest story. When read they lie in our subconscious, and become difficult to recall in detail. I thought, heck, I can add them to this blog, and then they won’t be lost to me, or to you, my dear readers.
This is the first Must Read Story. It’s what @DanielJHannan called ‘Here’s a truly extraordinary story’ in his post on Twitter yesterday, which is where I learned of the story. Click on the image to link to the story in the Smithsonian Magazine.
As the story unfolds it becomes ever more extraordinary.
