I believe both of these sightings are "NEW" to the Timeline.

The only other "spacey" item was these Rocket Pocket Knives:

The display card is better than the item itself!

WOW JOE - thats a really nice one! Great early robotrac and that dates pushes the Mechanical Brain only one year away from the earliest ST1 date we have... I heard rumours, that the ST1 must be older then the 1955 prove we have ... but I did not find any evidence for this till today...
