2 Babies Named After Skylab

skylab, time, 1979Skylab, the United States’ first space station, was in orbit from 1973 to 1979.

The re-entry on July 11, 1979, made headlines worldwide, thanks to the fact that no one knew exactly where Skylab debris would land. (The Indian Ocean and Western Australia, turns out, though ground control had been aiming for the waters south of Cape Town.)

Just hours before re-entry, a baby boy was born in Patiala, India. He was named Skylab Singh.

Update, 7/2/2011: Just discovered another baby named Skylab, incredibly.

A baby boy born in a Laotian refugee camp in Thailand about 12 hours before Skylab crashed was named Skylab (at the suggestion of an American friend). He was the first child of Buonnhong and Loommany Douangpangna.

The family moved to the U.S. several weeks after Skylab was born. (Or several weeks after Skylab crashed, however you want to look at it.)
