Carson Time Capsule... Wednesday, August 12th.

In the capsule today…

We find an appearance by Halley’s Comet. The comet is the only naked-eye comet that can appear twice in a human lifetime. The next appearance will be in 2061.

We find the movie “Space Camp” in theaters. The film is famous for being a "marketing nightmare," as it was released less than five months after the Challenger accident.

And we find a song on the radio by Huey Lewis and the News. According to Huey, the song was written about a girl he liked; however, she did not like the song when he revealed it to her.
