10712First confirmed use of secret code in online picturesSVRfirstRussia, 28 June 2010On 28 June 2010, the US Justice Department announced charges against 11 people accused of working for the SVR - the Russian successor to the Soviet KGB. Among the charges was the accusation that they had slipped encoded messages into otherwise harmless looking images on the internet, the first confirmed use of this high-tech approach to the concealment of data.The technique involves making changes to the three numeric values that a computer assigns to an on-screen image - these correspond to the amount of red, green or blue that each pixel in the image displays. By making slight changes to these values - which are undetectable to the naked eye - the spies were able to conceal the necessary ‘0’s and ‘1’s of the binary code they were using.
10713First supercomputerCray-1firstUnited States, 01 January 1976Supercomputers are the most powerful in the world and are usually on-off designs with a specific purpose. The current fastest, China’s Tianhe-1, works on aircraft design and petroleum exploration. US electrical engineer Seymour Cray founded Cray Research Inc in 1972 and, in 1976, the first Cray-1 supercomputer was installed at Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA. The Cray-1 cost $8.8 million and, at 160 megaflops, it was the fastest computer at the time. Its unusual shape stems from Cray’s aim to have the physical components close together, reducing the length of wires down which its signals would have to travel. The Cray-1 is regarded as the first supercomputer.
10714First spacecraft computers to use integrated circuitryApollo Guidance ComputerfirstUnited States, 01 January 1965The Apollo manned missions to the Moon required onboard computers to be as small and lightweight as possible, while being reliable and capable. Designed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Apollo Guidance Computer weighed just 30 kg and measured 61 x 32 x 17 cm. They were the first spacecraft computers to use integrated circuitry and became available in 1965. Each lunar landing mission had two AGCs, one in the command module and one in the lunar module. They had a memory of 2,048 words of RAM and 36,864 words of ROM.
10715First silk mapsSilk maps by cartographers in the court of the King of Ch’ang-shaChina01 January 0200Archaeologists discovered the first silk maps during excavations in Hunan Province, China, in 1973-74. They were found in the tombs of a prime minister, his wife and one of his sons—who are believed to have died in the 2nd Century BC. Scholars say that the maps were created by cartographers in the court of the King of Ch’ang-sha—the kingdom included Hunan and surrounding areas—and were incredibly accurate, indicating that cartography was already quite advanced in China by then. One of the maps covers the topography of not only modern Hunan but areas encompassing land all the way down to the South China Sea.
10716First clay tablet mapClay tablets discovered at NuziUnited Kingdom, British Museum, London01 January 2300Archaeologists have discovered maps inscribed on clay tablets at Nuzi in present-day northern Iraq—these predate by nearly two millennia the first Chinese map, which was engraved on a brass plate. Excavated in the 1920s, these clay representations from approximately 2300 BC lack the sophistication of those earliest Chinese maps, but they depict hills, streams and rivers, including the Euphrates, as well as various settlements. This period is considered the Age of Sargon, named for the ruler who conquered Mesopotamia. The “maps” are in the collections of the British Museum and the Fogg Art Museum in Cambridge, Massachusetts.An even earlier “map”—if it can really be called that, is a clay tablet from Babylon made sometime in the 6th Century BC. This can be considered the “earliest extant world map” as Earth is represented as a flat circle surrounded by oceans and even “mythical islands.” However, the “world,” as it were, is limited to the city of Babylon, with the Chaldeans to the southwest and the Assyrians plotted to the east--which was, indeed, the world as the Babylonians knew it—but hardly global or a refined example of cartographic art.
10717First modern trading card gameMagic: The Gatheringfirst, 05 August 1993The first modern trading card game, Magic: The Gathering, was set loose upon the world on 5 August 1993. Created by Professor Richard Garfield and published by Wizards of the Coast, Inc, Magic: The Gathering can be said to be the origin, indeed the very Genesis, of TCGs as we know them.The game, which remains enormously popular, combines the excitement of cards with the thrill of trading and collecting. Players engage in mortal combat to reduce their opponent’s score from 20 to 0 with a combination of attacks and defences that unleash spells, artifacts and mystical creatures.
