This Day in History: 1951 – In one of the most sensational trials in American history, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg are convicted of espionage for their role in passing atomic secrets to the Soviets during, and after World War II.  The husband and wife were later sentenced to death, and executed in 1953.

Fact of the Day:  By today’s standards, the Rosenberg trial was remarkably fast.  The trial began on March 6, and by March 29, both had been sentenced to death.  Many legalists have since opined their belief that the Rosenbergs were incompetently defended.

#StrangeButTrue: Homo Sapiens don’t develop kneecaps until around three years old.
