First mail from US to Europe 20 years ago

Today, 20 years ago this very moment, the first not militairy mail was sent from the US to Europe. It was recieved by Piet Beertema at the 'Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI)' (Centre of mathematics) in Amsterdam. Europe was connected to the US internet.
The CWI in Amsterdam plays even today a major role in the internet. It's Europe's major 'backbone'.
How internet has changed our lives in those 20 years...

The historical e-mail..... Such a simple e-mail.....

Its hard to imagine a world without the internet times change, once upon a time I couldnt even imagine a world with colour television in it !!!!!
