A bystander saw her raise her arm, grabbed it, and the shot went wild.

1985 - By the time she was 79 years old, in May, a paper published in Nature by three British scientists reported that a huge hole was discovered in the ozone layer over the Antarctic. It was much larger than expected and is due to the use of manmade chemicals.
