Each Saturn V rocket required a total of 55000 bhp of fuel pumps to supply the required 190,000 litres of fuel per minute to the rocket. This is equivalent to 857 sv650's.

This day in 1981 Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer. That worked out well!

2500 years ago a slave call girl from Sardinia named Gedophamee (pronounced
Get-offa'-me) was attending a great athletic festival in Greece.

This festival had no name.

In those days the athletes performed naked (believe it or not).
To prevent unwanted arousal while competing, the men imbibed freely on drink
containing saltpeter before and throughout the variety of events.

At the opening ceremonial parade, Gedophamee observed the first wave of naked
athletic males marching toward her and she exclaimed: "Oh! Limp *****s!"

Over the next two and a half millennia that expression morphed into "Olympics".
Just thought I'd share this new found knowledge with you.

You're very welcome

29 April 1942 the Germans inflicted their Baedeker Raid on York.
Bar Convent was severely damaged, but not as much as Sir Ralph Wedgwood:

50 years ago, H M Gov banned offshore pirate radio.Have somewhere a photo of Radio 270 which sailed out of Scarborough but it's lost somewhere in the puny archive of fame!
This action led to the start of Radio 1

On this day in 1918 the Royal Air Force was founded by merging the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service. It was the first independent Air Force in the world.
