A time capsule sealed 50 years ago was recently opened to reveal what was in it – absolutely nothing



It turns out they're all wrong: The capsule was empty.

The unopened safe was on a dusty shelf in a Derry library for years. On its 50th anniversary, Library Director Cara Potter decided to find out what it contained before it was publicly announced, CNN subsidiary WMUR reported.

Potter opened the capsule, flanked by a small crowd of local historians and city officials. It took a few tries to clear the old door, but when the time came, the group was disappointed with what they had done, or better said, had not found.

"We were a little appalled to see that there was nothing in it," said Potter.

The capsule was to be unveiled on Saturday at Londonderry's nearby Old Home Day. Town manager Kevin Smith brought the news of a disappointed crowd.

"It turns out we have our own little unit," Smith told the New Hampshire Union Leader.

Derry historian Paul Lindemann told the newspaper that there was no listing of its content, but the safe was a movie cast of a city tour.

Could someone have cracked the combination lock and stolen the goods? Perhaps. But it is also possible that there was nothing in it at all.

Potter speculated that he had memorabilia of Alan Shepard, a Derry native and the first American astronaut who had traveled to space. But for the time being, the contents of the time capsule from 1
969 – if any – will be lost in time.

"We will not know what happened to them," she said.
