    Remnants of the old DC streetcar system on P St that ran from 1862 until 1962. They began operation as horsecars and then started operating as electric in 1888. Eventually like any technology they became obsolete and were replaced by buses. Most of the tracks were removed but the ones on O and P St remain and with the cobblestones make for some bumpy riding!

    The National Institute of Standards and Technology. It's an agency within the Commerce Department whose mission is to promote US innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology. In other words, helping to set standards. NIST maintains the US civilian time standards. Some other innovations to have come out of NIST include close captioning, pioneering instrument landing system that is used by aircrafts when flying at night, and developing security protocols like the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for online transactions.

    #STEM - The International Latitude Observatory was built in 1899 to measure the earth’s wobble on its polar axis. Along with 5 other cities around the globe, Gaithersburg used a large Zenith telescope to aid in the research of polar motion, the size, shape and physical properties of the earth, climate and earthquake predictions, and the navigational patterns of orbiting satellites. Although not longer functioning, the Observatory became a National Historic Landmark in 1989.
