Timeline

Although in later years they were thought to be innocent, they were anarchists and were convicted of the crime and put to death.

1943 - Steve was 23 years old when on March 31st, the Broadway musical Oklahoma! opened.

The musical ran for 2,212 performances originally and was made into a movie in 1954.

1983 - By the time he was 63 years old, physicist Sally K. Ride, 32, became the first US woman astronaut in space as a crew member aboard space shuttle Challenger on June 18th. She was also the youngest (32) astronaut to go into space. Soviet cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova was the first woman in space in 1963.

1988 - He was 68 years old when on December 21st, Pan Am Flight 103 exploded over Lockerbie Scotland. The explosion killed all 259 people on board and another 11 on the ground.

After an exhaustive (and long) investigation it came to be believed that two individuals from Libya had planted the bomb.
