Born This Day In History 29th June

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Born: June 29th, 1900, Lyon, France
Died: July 31st, 1944, over the Mediterranean coast of France

Known For : Originally a commerical pilot that flew from Africa from France, he also did flights in South America. He flew for the French Air Force at the beginning of the Second World War, and evacuated to the United States and Canada on France's capitulation to Nazi Germany. It was in America that he wrote his best known work: The Little Prince. His novels included Night Flight and Wind, Sand and Stars (both of which were written in the Thirties). He joined the Free French air force and took part in reconnaisance missions for the Allies.

 

Desert Crash:

On 30 December 1935, at 2:45 am, after 19 hours and 44 minutes in the air, Saint-Exupéry, along with his mechanic-navigator André Prévot, crashed in the Libyan desert, during an attempt to break the speed record in a Paris-to-Saigon air race and win a prize of 150,000 francs.  The crash site is thought to have been near the Wadi Natrun valley, close to the Nile Delta.  Both Saint-Exupéry and Prévot miraculously survived the crash, only to face rapid dehydration in the intense desert heat. Their maps were primitive and ambiguous, leaving them with no idea of their location. Lost among the sand dunes, their sole supplies consisted of some grapes, two oranges, a madeleine, a pint of coffee in a battered thermos and a half pint of white wine in another. They also had with them a small store of medicine: "a hundred grammes of ninety percent alcohol, the same of pure ether, and a small bottle of iodine."  The pair had only one day's worth of fluids. They both saw mirages and experienced auditory hallucinations, which were quickly followed by more vivid hallucinations. By the second and third day, they were so dehydrated that they stopped sweating. On the fourth day, a Bedouin on a camel discovered them and administered a native rehydration treatment that saved their lives. The near brush with death would figure prominently in his 1939 memoir, Wind, Sand and Stars, winner of several awards. Saint-Exupéry's classic novella The Little Prince, which begins with a pilot being stranded in the desert, is, in part, a reference to this experience.

 

Death:

His plane disappeared in southern France and he was never seen again (a German pilot has since claimed the kill).

 

Quotes:

The time for action is now. It's never too late to do something.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.
 
You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.
 
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

Today in History - June 25, 1967

 1967 - The Beatles "All You Need Is Love," a song written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon/McCartney was first performed on a live global television link "Our World."  "Our World" was the first ever, live, global satellite television production which was broadcast June 25, 1967. It was broadcast to 26 countries and watched by an estimated 350 to 400 million viewers.  The project was conceived by BBC producer Aubrey Singer.  The BBC had commissioned the Beatles to write a song for the UK's contribution to the program containing a simple message that could be easily understood by all nationalities.
