Inspired by my students wanting more details from facts on my “Today In History” section of the chalkboard, I created What’s That Story as a way to satisfy my own curiosity into topics that often inspire trivia questions. This site is different from The Robot Sky in that I intend to keep it on track and fairly focused whereas TRS can be all over the place as far as content is concerned.
At the time of this publishing, there are interesting stories on the USS Constitution, America’s oldest warship that is still in service; The Principality of Sealand, a micronation off the coast of England; and Bodies on Mount Everest, the story of the 200+ bodies that still cover the peak of the world’s tallest mountain. Along with the blog posts, you can expect to soon be able to download the audio versions of the stories via podcast, and see more in depth photo galleries on YouTube. For those launch announcements, be sure to follow the Twitter page by clicking HERE.
