Yay, spacecraft that looks Russian :lol:

Soyuz TM-32 mission to ISS began on 28/04/2001. And it was carrying Dennis Tito, first space tourist, aboard?

Okay, I found something. I hope there is somebody who can solve it. What happened today (May 11th) that is related to our little friend here?

Hmmm... maybe this helps, maybe not, we'll see.

It could have helped :lol:

HMS "Beagle", ship on board of which Charles Darwin famously voyaged in 1831-1836, was launched on 11/05/1820?
..because that's the only person I know of that can easily connect birds and small semi-random islands :lol:

Found it!

That bird is the "Calayan Rail", a flightless bird discovered on Calayan Island in the Philippines on May 11, 2004.

I had to go to the German wikipedia page again to confirm the date. ;)

What event relating indirectly to something in this picture happened on May 14th? It might be a couple of steps from the picture to the event. ;)

Post Re: What's today?
I have a guess. It's FAR away from the picture, but as you mentioned there might be a couple of steps in between...

In 1607 on May 14th (Gregorian calendar / May 4th as per Julian calendar) 104 British settlers founded Jeamestown, the first permanent British settlement in America.

Not even close, sorry.

I'll give you a hint. If you find the name of that instrument then you'll find the name of the man who, shall we say, orchestrated this event. :D



Still not? Here's another clue:

Finally...

That Instrument is a Sousaphone, created by John Philip Sousa who wrote 136 marches, among others also The Stars and Stripes Forever which was first performed on May 14th, 1897.

Yay! Finally! Well done, Render!
And how many of those marches did you search through before finding the right one? :P

In case you're wondering, the flag is because "Stars and Stripes Forever" was first performed at Willow Grove Park, just outside Philadelphia.

Post Re: What's today?
Oh, The Stars and Stripes Forever have been my first thought, but I was to blind (stupid, tired, whatever) to see the date, so I clicked through the other marches one by one and when I reached my first thought, I saw the date............. *facepaw*


But anyway, herewith I present the next "What's today?":

I'm looking for an event that happened today (May 20th). Here's the related picture:

Okay, a little hint.

A few years after the event some of these bars have been produced, 1 original and 30 identical copies. The material was a special expensive alloy.

Long live the hint! It at least gave an idea of where to look :lol:

20/05/1875, the Metre Convention is signed, which created, amongst others, International Bureau of Weights and Measures, which in turn, created in 1899 a platinum-iridium bar which was an international standard of a metre, possibly shown on the picture?

May 22, a patent is filed for a device to squeeze fluid from a tube, like toothpaste or creams in 1980.

May 22, a patent was filed for the toothbrush in 1961.

May 22, a patent was published for a collapsible toothbrush with paste supply and cover ad dispensing means in 1973

May 22, a patent was filed for the toothbrush in 1992.

May 22, a patent was filed for a device for deforming the head of a deformable toothbrush in 1992.

Am I close?
