1. Moon water
A great scientific discovery was made public on Friday, November 13, 2009. NASA scientists shared on this date that water was discovered on the moon, according to CNN. “I’m here today to tell you that indeed, yes, we found water. And we didn’t find just a little bit; we found a significant amount,” said NASA project scientist Anthony Colaprete during a news conference.
The team discovered what they describe as “about a dozen, two-gallon bucketfuls.” It is absolutely nothing unlucky about this cool fact.
2. Music to our ears
A musical invention was introduced on Friday the 13th. According to Time.com, the accordion was patented on January 13, 1854, which was a Friday. Just imagine how sad we would have been if we hadn’t been able to enjoy polka music with the accompaniment of this instrument.
