As time goes bye ...

As my presentation at the BOB2018 (https://bob2018.de/) on 16-May-18 is coming closer, I was thinking about my opening statement today. The audience will mainly be 14 - 16 year old kids, so I was remembering the time, when I was the same age --> 1976 - 1978.

Surprise, surprise - some things did not change in the last 40+ years 😉:


  • We are still sending spacecrafts to Mars for upfront investigation of the planet. Viking1 on 20-Jul-1976 as part of the Viking program.
  • The Rolling Stones are still on Tour, they are just changing the tour names. It was Tour of Europe 1976 and is No Filter-Tour  2018.
  • Queen Elizabeth II jubilee celebration, it was Silver (25 years) 1977 and we just had Sapphire (65 years) last year (2017).
  • Star Wars movies are coming to cinema. Film #1 called Episode IV  in 1977, and film #8 called Episode VIII  in 2017.

Unbelievable. If you have more examples, just let me know. I might be able to use it during my presentation 👍.
