1990 Memories on the Back 20:
In 1990, the most complete T-Rex was discovered in South Dakota. “Sue,” named for the paleontolgoist who discovered the fossilized skeleton, Sue Hendrickson, was 40 feet long, and stood 13 feet tall at the hip. You can find Sue here at the Chicago Field Museum.
In 1990, the first in-car SATELLITE navigation systems became available in cars. They featured GPS navigation which meant a car’s position could be triangulated in real time. Previous versions (CD-Rom’s) used maps and dead reckoning–estimating location by measuring distance, direction, and speed travelled.
Trivia: the song Wanted by Alan Jackson was inspired by an old John Wayne movie poster.
