My recap of 1993 continues today with a recollection of some events from the second half of 1993. I think my space geek is showing just a little -- of the four events I cover here, two are related to NASA and space exploration (the loss of the Mars Observer and the first repair mission for the Hubble Space Telescope). I also discuss the Battle of Mogadishu (remembered mostly today through the book and film Black Hawk Down) and the Maastricht Treaty, which provided the framework for today's European Union. The picture at the left is an artist's rendering of the Hubble Space Telescope.
