A dinner party scene combined with rocket launch.  The text I redacted is from a 1901 edition of Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine.  The diners are part of a Victorian illustration by H.C. Hoffbauer.  And the rocket is Apollo 15, launched July 26, 1971.  (Rocket image credit: NASA)

A 1902 craftmaking book for girls borrowed for a STEM poem.  (The text is from "What a Girl Can Make and Do: New Ideas for Work and Play," By Lina Beard, Adelia Belle Beard, Cairns Collection of American Women Writers.)  A launch photo of the Mercury-Redstone 4 (July 21, 1961) divides the poem.  I enhanced the rocket contrails with tissue paper.
