On July 1, 2010, Lofty Ambitions Blog launches. Going forward, look for regular postings on aviation, science (especially of the twentieth century), and writing as a couple every Wednesday.
In addition to these weekly postings, we’ll add timely pieces as well. For instance, on June 30, 1948, Bell Labs announced the transistor as a substitute for radio tubes; celebrate by tuning your radio to your favorite station and singing aloud! Or, on this date in 1973, seven scientists aboard the Concorde prototype, because of its flying speed and altitude, witnessed a 74-minute solar eclipse—now that’s the ultimate example of being in the right place at the right time!
