IMagine that you wanted to send a message to the people of the future.What would you want them to know about you and the time in which you lived?The answers are being preserved in time capsule.
The modern idea of the time capsule was made popular during the preparation for the 1939 World's Fair in New Year.Created by Westinghouse(西屋) as part of their exhibit,the capsule was made of an ultra-durable metal alloy so that it would withstand the tests of time and nature.Its contents included crop seeds,pieces of industrial machinery,and even the Holy Bible, as well as everyday items such as a watch, a fountain pen and a lady's hat. This was a serious attempt to provide a clear description of civilization in 1939.
