The Spouting Horn in a Storm, 1872. Creator: W. J. Linton Featured Image

The Spouting Horn in a Storm, 1872. Creator: W. J. Linton

The "Spouting Horn" in a Storm, 1872. Rocks on the coast of Maine, north eastern USA: a wide chasm in the cliff, which extends down to the water and opens to the sea through a small archway below high-water mark. At low water the arch may be reached over the slippery, weed-covered rocks, and the chasm within ascended by means of uncertain footholds in the sides of the rocky wall. A few adventurous tourists have accomplished this feat, but it is a very dangerous one. If the foot should slip on the smooth, briny rock, and the adventurer glide into the water, escape would be almost impossible. The waves would suck him down into their depths - now toss him upon rocks, whose slippery surface would resist every attempt to grasp, then drag him back into their foaming embrace'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. I, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1872]

Failed attempt to recover Liberty Bell 7, Atlantic Ocean, 1961.. Creator: NASA Featured Image

Failed attempt to recover Liberty Bell 7, Atlantic Ocean, 1961.. Creator: NASA

Failed attempt to recover Liberty Bell 7, Atlantic Ocean, 1961. After the hatch of the "Liberty Bell 7" opened prematurely, gallons of seawater entered the spacecraft. A helicopter recovery team attempted to empty the water, as seen in this photo. Seconds after this picture was taken, the Marine helicopter dropped the spacecraft because it was too heavy to continue lifting, and the capsule sank to the ocean floor. Astronaut Virgil I. Grissom was still in the water at the time, and his head is seen bobbing next to the capsule. Grissom almost drowned, but was rescued by a second helicopter before his suit filled up with too much water. The Liberty Bell 7 was eventually recovered from 15, 000 feet below the surface of the Atlantic on July 20, 1999
