MIT researchers were so excited to open a time capsule found during construction that they broke the seal 942 years early.By Kaileen Gaul | November 18, 2015
Some people at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology need to learn the value of patience. The school opened up a time capsule 942 years before its intended opening date.
The capsule was found during construction of a new MIT building. Clearly visible, right there, was a note that says do not open until 2957 but the MIT researchers "weren't sure if they were serious or not and went ahead and broke into it."
