    SPACE DEBRIS HITS PERSON ON EARTH
    January 22, 1997 - Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A.

    American Lottie Williams was reportedly the first human to be struck by a remnant of a space vehicle after re-entering the earth's atmosphere. At 3 a.m., while walking in a park in Tulsa, Oklahoma, she saw a light pass over her head. “It looked like a meteor,” she said. Minutes later, she was hit on the shoulder by a six-inch piece of blackened metallic material. The debris that struck Ms. Williams has not been examined to confirm its origin, but a used Delta II rocket, launched nine months earlier, had crashed into the Earth's atmosphere half an hour earlier. NASA scientists believe that Williams was hit by a part of it, making her the only person in the world known to have been hit by man-made space debris.

    URANIUM FISSION
    January 22, 1939 - Columbia University in New York City, U.S.A.

    The uranium atom was split for the first time using the cyclotron at Columbia University in New York City. Thus began the Manhattan Project, leading to the construction of the atom bomb. The project was subsequently moved inland to the University of Chicago to protect the research from any possible German bombing of New York. (Also the weight of the apparatus was so great that the floor was in danger of collapsing!) The cyclotron that performed the first-ever fission experiment was designed and built (1935-36) by John R. Dunning, who became Dean of the Engineering School, 1950-69). In 1965, the cyclotron was taken to the Smithsonian Institute. The original invention of the first cyclotron was by physicist Ernest Lawrence.

Actually, currently, people are steadily hunting for some or the other thing. Majority of the people are aware about the fact that there is no other place better than Internet to find things. It is very wise to search on web directories as all the items are categorized perfectly making your search easier. Suppose if you have a construction business where you supply construction material worldwide. You want the world to know about your business, thus you will instead look for some original website that aids you to advertise your business worldwide. Thus, web directory is the best option which helps you to tell the whole world about your business.

In directory entries, there are many matters that anyone should be known with in order to make a successful directory submission. One of the most vernacular components that would dispute anyone's decision in directory entries includes the selection of putting in to costless or paid directories. Experts says, for long term projects, it is right to do entries in compensated directories because they remain more far than the costless directories. The most time that free directories last on the web is about a year, such that it would be very impractical to echo the same entry after a twelvemonth is complete. Several compensated directories live more far than one year. Furthermore, it is critical for the directory to have withstood the test of time. In other language, these directories should have constituted themselves already in the World Wide Web. Some crucial decision that one will have to do regarding directory submissions is deciding between niche and general directories.
