Transcript 1990 Space Shuttle Discovery blasts off, carrying a five-man crew and a tracking and data relay satellite. The crew returned safely after a successful five-day mission. 1987 This mural was painted at the Riverside Apartments, a few minutes away from campus. Artworks like this one have been a fixture in the Houston area for years. 1970 A member of the Rational Youth Movement burns a Viet Cong flag - an interesting parallel to the controversial burning of American flags common to the opposing viewpoint. &mm&$ The population of the city of Houston when the University was founded was just less than 400,000 people. By the schools 75th anniversary, Houston had burgeoned into a sprawling metropolis with nearly four million people in Harris County alone. Many things changed in Houston over the years, making the city one of the most diverse and vibrant in the nation. The early years of UH saw a school surrounded by a modest city and a great deal of farmland. There were many occasions when horse-drawn carts were as likely to be seen as cars on the towns major roads. Towards the middle of the century, Houston's reputation as a center for the petrochemical industry grew, and several companies such as Chevron, Texaco, and Shell based their headquarters downtown. In the 1960s, Houston gained worldwide notoriety as "Space City" as the Johnson Space Center served as Mission Control for NASA's Apollo space program which saw twelve Americans walk on the moon. The Richmond Strip became the social center of the city, and the Eighth Wonder of the World, also known as the Houston Astrodome, was erected on the newly completed 610 Interstate Loop. The 1980s were a turbulent time for the Houston community, as the Oil Boom was quickly followed by the Oil Bust which saw the city's energy sector decimated for a years. Things had basically recovered by the 1990s, as the Houston skyline was now dominated by commanding skyscrapers. As the new century began, Houston was home to three domed stadiums, several "Megamalls," and one of the world's most diverse populations. What better place could the University of Houston have called home for its first, as well as its next 75 years? Matthew E. Caster s£\f£? (community Ooniiniuinity Nostalgia \263/
