  1. The Columbia Plateau is a wide flood basalt plateau between the Cascade Range and the Rocky Mountains, lying across parts of the US states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. The Columbia River Basalt Group consists of seven basalt formations: Steens Basalt, Imnaha, Grande Ronde, Picture Gorge, Prineville, Wanapum, and Saddle Mountains. Some 6 million years ago a flood basalt engulfed about 63,000 square miles (160,000 km2) of the Pacific Northwest, forming a large igneous province. Over perhaps 10 to 15 million years, lava flows accumulated to a thickness of more than 6,000 feet (1.8 km) and, as the molten rock came to the surface, the Earth's crust gradually sank into the space left by the rising lava, producing a large plateau. The Columbia river was forced into its present course by the northwesterly advancing lava, which filled the stream valleys, forming dams that in turn caused impoundments or lakes.

    Space Shuttle “Columbia” (Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV-102) was NASA’s first space-rated orbiter. It launched for the first time on mission STS-1 on 12 April 1981, the first flight of the Space Shuttle program. Its 26th and last successful mission, STS-109 (SM3B), was the Space Shuttle program’s 108th mission and the 4th servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope. “Columbia”’s 1st flight after an extensive 2 2/2-year modification, it took off on 1 March 2002. The crew installed the Advanced Camera for Surveys, new rigid solar arrays, a new Power Control Unit, a Reaction Wheel Assembly, and an experimental cryocooler for the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer. On the next “Columbia” mission, STS-107, the craft disintegrated during reentry into the atmosphere on 1 February 2003, causing a suspension of Space Shuttle flight operations were suspended for more than 2, two years, delaying construction of the International Space Station.

  2. Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver was a a pre-adolescent boy played by Jerry Mathers on the "Leave It to Beaver" TV series that ran from 1957 to 1963, created by Joe Connelly and Bob Mosher, a duo who had been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Story for "The Private War of Major Benson" in 1955. In 1983 Mathers returned to the role as an adult in "Still the Beaver," which became a series in 1985; renamed "The New leave It to Beaver," it aired until 1989.(A movie was released in 1997 starring Cameron Finley.)
