The Westinghouse Time Capsules
The Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company is a large electric company in the United States. It was established in 1886, and it still exists today. In 1939, Westinghouse created a time capsule for the New York World’s Fair. They filled the capsule with common items from that time, including pieces of cloth, metal, plastic, plant and vegetable seeds, money, books, art, and news stories on microfilm. The time capsule is buried in the park in New York where the World’s Fair was held.
In 1964, Westinghouse made another time capsule for the 1964 World’s Fair and buried it near the first capsule. The plan is that both of these capsules will be opened in the year 6939—in five thousand years! Do you think these capsules will last that long? Do you think these items will help people in five thousand years learn about life in the year 1939?
