In celebration of the City of Cape Canaveral's 50th anniversary a 50 year Time Capsule is being sealed.

Historian Ray Osborne said, "We have a number of fascinating items of interest including letters from Astronaut John Glenn, President Jimmy Carter, I Dream of Jeannie star Barbara Eden, Clara Ma whose essay named the Mars Rover "Curiosity' and others from city founders. Other items include collectibles such as stamp covers, a silk tie from Florida Solar Energy Center, a Tropicana Transistor radio and much more. The capsule is to be sealed on May 16, 2013 to coincide with a pictoral postmark cancellation which will be the exact 50th year and day for the incorporation of the City of Cape Canaveral.
