Items in the 1939 & 1964 World's Fair Time Capsule



billkozyBillkozy on 11/07/2009

Itemsinthe1939amp1964WorldsFairTimeCapsule Photo In the summer of 1939, science fiction writer G. Edward Pendray raised the notion of interring a "time capsule" at the 1939 World's Fair. It was deemed a fascinating idea then, and was repeated at the 1964 World's Fair. Supposedly, both capsules are not to be opened for 5,000 years, to remain buried there, 50 feet underground in an isolated section of Flushing Meadows' Corona Park, marked by a now-graffitied monument. While the ancient Egyptian version of a time capsule was a mummified pharaoh, these modern-day torpedo-shaped capsules were meant to contain that era's cutting edge examples of art, science, and business. Many of them were stored on microfilm, and of course, many of the items were the actual objects.

Here in this quiz are some examples of what items were left in those two time capsules. I'll alternate between the two years 1939 and 1964, asking about what item you think was left in the time capsule for each year.

Good luck, and please rate the quiz afterward if you have a chance.

Best Wishes,
Bill
