Adopted in 1968, who is NASA’s official safety mascot?

dgrimm60

Answer: After the Apollo 1 fire, NASA needed to rebuild its devastated Apollo program. They approached Charles Schulz, creator of Peanuts, for permission to use Snoopy as their mascot for safety. Shultz agreed, and granted NASA permission. Starting in 1968, a Silver Snoopy metal pin hitched a ride with every astronaut. In 1969, Apollo 10 selected Snoopy as their official mascot, petting his nose for luck before launch. The flight modules took on names of Peanuts characters, with Charlie Brown as the Command Service Module, and Snoopy as the Lunar Module.

Which breed of cat does not have a tail?

Manx

MANX

Answer: A Manx cat looks like your typical cat—that is, until it turns around and you find that it’s missing a tail. Manx cats are best known as being tailless and it is the distinguishing characteristic of the breed. The tailless Manx is the result of a genetic mutation that was then intensified by the cats’ remote location on the Isle of Man, off the coast of Britain. The island became known for the tailless cats, which is how they got their name. The Manx cat has been so beloved by the island’s residents that in 1971 the government put a picture of the Manx on one of its coins.

RICHARD  CADBURY

Answer: The tradition of gifting chocolate on Valentine's Day began with a dedicated marketing campaign by Richard Cadbury. Richard Cadbury, son of Cadbury founder John Cadbury, created the first heart-shaped box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day. A marketing genius, Cadbury began putting Cupids and rosebuds on heart-shaped boxes in 1861. Thus, began the common link between chocolate and Valentine’s Day. A new tradition had begun. Each year, over 36 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolates are sold around the world.

THEODORE  ROOSEVELT

Answer: Theodore Roosevelt's mother and wife died only hours apart on Valentine's Day in 1884. Each loss was an unexpected shock. His 48-year-old mother, Martha "Mittie" Roosevelt, had been taken ill and succumbed to typhoid fever. On the same day, his wife of four years, Alice Lee, died of Bright’s disease, a severe kidney ailment. Only two days before her death, Alice Lee had given birth to the couple’s daughter, Alice. In his diary, Roosevelt marked Valentine's Day 1884 with a black “X” and wrote, "The light has gone out of my life."
