What In The World Happened Here? XLVII (47):

Well, moving on from boosting fire ants to almost warp 1 in a vacuum...

OK that is the parking lot for people watching the shuttle landings at Edwards AFB.

Rod, sounds like you are close, but not bang on.

And you got both, except that they never finished the hole so they never smashed any atoms. Dang!

I'm guessing that Rod is right and you want him to say "4/14/1981."

What is what I want! When is good, though.
How involved thousands of tons of fuel, and we all know why.

And "Columbia's first landing" is not the answer, close, but not bang on.

I'd say "what" is Woodstock.

So close! I'm looking for something you could hear - almost feel.
It happened for the first time at that place.
And yes, I was at that Woodstock, but not the other one.

SarahC - welcome! You would love you (and anybody!) to post puzzles, but we already did the Battle of Hastings (which was really the Battle of Battle).

Here is the magic incantation (in forum code) to make the announcement:

{font:Times New Roman}{b}{color:#FF0000}What In The World Happened Here? XLVIII (48):{/color}{/b}{/font}

Copy the code, replace curly brackets with straight, then edit the numeral... Then paste into your post. This way you get the color right & the Roman numerals have pretty serifs.

(If we use the correct brackets, the forum formats it)

My wife Clemmie was not a Churchill but she says that this WITWHH like all of them is an enigma.
