IMPORTANT EVENTS ON MARCH 31
133 years ago like today it took place in Paris the inauguration of the Eiffel Tower. March 31, 1889 its creator, designer Gustav Eiffel raised the French flag at the top of the tower.
Today, the design of the Eiffel Tower is the most recognizable architectural landmark in Paris. It is known around the world as a symbol of France. The designer himself simply named it – a 300-meter tower.
For more than forty years after its inauguration, the Eiffel Tower was the tallest building in the world, almost double the tallest buildings of that time – the pyramids of Cheops, Cologne and the Cathedrals of Ulm. But in 1930 it surpassed the Chrysler Building in New York (USA).
March 31 is considered birthday zipper. It is believed that the first prototype of the “lightning” was developed by the American Whitcomb Leo Judson. He patented it and the invention was presented to the public on March 31, 1893.
Despite the advantages of the clip, it was not successful for a long time. People have never learned how to use it. Just 20 years after its appearance, the “thunderbolt” gained popularity. The credit for this goes to a Swedish engineer, Gideon Sundbek. It made the clasp thinner, more flexible and safer by increasing the number of hooks.
Today, more than half of the “lightning” on the planet is produced by the Japanese company YKK. Bangladesh, India and China are also considered global hubs for zipper construction. By the way, the largest zipper was made in the Netherlands in 1989. The length of this “zipper” was 2851 meters.
56 years ago The first artificial lunar satellite was launched in the USSR. On March 31, 1966, the Molniya-M launch vehicle was launched from the Baikonur spacecraft, which put the Luna-10 automatic interplanetary station into orbit around the Moon.
“Luna-10” operated actively for 56 days, during which information was received about the gravitational and magnetic fields of the Moon, the Earth’s magnetic plume, as well as some data on the chemical composition and radioactivity of the Moon’s surface rocks.
May 30, 1966 The “Luna-10” fell to the surface of the moon. It ended its active existence due to the depletion of the charge of chemical batteries, since it was not equipped with solar panels.
March 31st is celebrated International Backup Day. Backup is the backup of important data on a medium that is designed to restore data in the event of damage or loss to the primary medium.
This day aims to draw the public’s attention to the issues of ensuring the preservation of information, as well as to the dissemination of information on the need for protection against data loss.
Protect your data, back up!
