FRIDAY 19/03/2010 09:30(GMT)

THIS DAY IN WW2 (19.3.40)
Over Germany... RAF bombers -- 30 Whitleys and 20 Hampdens -- attack the a German seaplane base at Hornum, at the southern end of the North Sea island of Sylt. The raid, publicly disclosed in the House of Commons by the prime minister as it was happening, is a reprisal for the German bombing of Scapa Flow three days ago in which six sailors and a civilian were killed.
In London... Chamberlain makes a detailed statement in the Commons on British plans and actions on Finland's behalf. A 100,000-strong Anglo-French expeditionary force could not be sent due to the refusal of entry by Norway and Sweden. Large quantities of arms ammunition, equipment and aircraft (152) had been delivered or promised.

TRIVIA

You CAN escape the gravitational pull of a Black Hole so long as you stay outside the "Event Horizon", the line beyond which the only way is in! Outside this point, a black hole's gravity is like any star.
Every galaxy has a Supermassive Black Hole in the centre - including ours.

TODAY'S AFFIRMATION

Every moment of my life is an important opportunity.
