Saving Time: Ten Trippy Time Capsules By Steve in Architecture & Design, History & Factoids, Technology & Futurism Time capsules… messages from today to the world of tomorrow! Everything from perishable beer & cigarettes to an entire car have been sealed in vaults for 25, 50, 100 years or much longer. 9/11 Memorial Museum: an emotional underworld beneath Ground Zero In the middle of the World Trade Center site in New York, tourists squeeze their bodies against the faceted mirror-glass planes of the 9/11 Memorial Museum, eager to sneak a peek at what lies within.
