My first legacy blog – Halley’s Comet

Comet Halley 1910

Comet Halley 1910

This is my first attempt at a true Legacy Blog. I believe I created the concept, and researched it with the post, An experiment in time travel. That article (seemingly posted in 1988), and the correspondence with WordPress (included in the comments below that post) showed that blog articles can be dated at any time in history after 1970.

For two years  in the mid-80s I wrote a weekly astronomy column for the Winnipeg Free Press. I began with my reports about the approach of Comet Halley. Those articles are now nowhere on the Internet. The newspaper informed me that we own joint copyright to that material. So, my plan is to gradually post those articles as if I was blogging at the time. They will be date stamped with the actual date of publication. You can find them at The Return of Comet Halley.
