Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

The Loneliest Space Shuttle

Buran-soyuz

I was looking through some photos of Baikonur Cosmodrome the other day when I came across this shot from 2003. A gigantic ISS-bound Soyuz TMA-3 dominates the foreground, while a forlorn Buran shuttle mock-up sits forgotten in a field, lamenting the time when it was the future of the Soviet manned space program.

Technik Museum Speyer rescued a similar shuttle in 2008 and installed it as a permanent exhibit.
