155 Years Before the First Animated Gif, Joseph Plateau Set Images in Motion with the Phenakistoscope | Colossal | Walking On Sunshine | Scoop.it

Nearly 155 years before CompuServe debuted the first animated gif in 1987, Belgian physicist Joseph Plateau unveiled an invention called the Phenakistoscope, a device that is largely considered to be the first mechanism for true animation. The simple gadget relied on the persistence of vision principle to display the illusion of images in motion.

16 year old Southern Indiana scout planning monument to Tuskegee Airmen

16 year old Southern Indiana scout planning monument to Tuskegee Airmen | Walking On Sunshine | Scoop.it

To obtain his Eagle Scout rank, the highest level in Boy Scouts, Molinari is working on a project to prominently honor the Tuskegee Airmen's service to the country and their presence at the airfield, which is now called Freeman Municipal Airport.



He plans to erect a larger, concrete monument that will display a large photograph and plaque near the airport's flagpole. The memorial will face the flight line and will include two benches, creating what Molinari termed a plaza allowing people to sit and appreciate the Tuskegee Airmen's contributions and impact on American history.
