I don't know why this came to mind. But hey, must be exhausting to move like that :)

See: https://youtu.be/q99Q2MLIIRI
Soviet spaceplane Buran (Буран) was launched, orbited Earth, and landed as an unmanned spacecraft in 1988.
The Energia-Buran Reusable Space System (MKS) began development in 1976 as a Soviet system that would replicate the capabilities of the US shuttle system. Following extended development, Buran made a successful first unmanned flight on 15 November 1988. Funding dried up and the Buran programme disappeared from the government's budget after 1993.

The first person to climb all 14 eight-thousanders was the Italian Reinhold Messner, who completed this feat on 16 October 1986. Messner summitted each of the 14 peaks without the aid of supplemental oxygen.

That's a pretty demanding request ^^

I'm not able to fully respond to it - therefore other players are free to better respond if they can and to skip my show me request below.

In French, 'Valence' is the name of a town in southeastern France ('Valence' in English) and the name of a city in eastern Spain ('Valencia' in English). I've been to that French town and Valencia will be one of my destinations within the next few years when I travel to Spain again.

“She was the largest craft afloat and the greatest of the works of man… Unsinkable – indestructible, she carried as few life boats as would satisfy the laws.”



A luxury liner embarks on her first voyage with much fanfare, only to hit an iceberg and capsize. Sound familiar? But this isn’t an account of the RMS Titanic; this is the plot of The Wreck of the Titan, a novella written by Morgan Robertson. Wreck was published in 1898, more than a decade before the real-life wreck of the Titanic.



The similarities between the fictional and the real-life are astounding. Both were considered glorious feats of modern engineering, were touted as being practically unsinkable, contained less than half the number of life boats required, and were struck by icebergs on their starboard side, taking half of their passenger’s lives. Finally, both the Titan and the Titanic sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on a night in April.



In 1912, a new version of The Wreck of the Titan was released that increased the Titan’s weight from 45 000 tonnes to 70 000, bringing it closer to the Titanic’s 66 000.
