    Born on this Day in History: June 29, 1943 - Plucked from obscurity by songwriters Carole King and Gerry Goffin, for whom she was babysitting, Little Eva reached the top of the charts with the dance song "The Loco-Motion" in 1962. She appeared on the popular TV dance show, "American Bandstand," and her follow-up single, "Keep Your Hands off My Baby," made it into the top 20 later that year. Later efforts, however, failed to catch on with fans.

    On this Day in History: June 29, 1995 - the American space shuttle Atlantis docks with the Russian space station Mir to form the largest man-made satellite ever to orbit the Earth. This historic moment of cooperation between former rival space programs was also the 100th human space mission in American history. At the time, Daniel Goldin, chief of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), called it the beginning of "a new era of friendship and cooperation" between the U.S. and Russia. With millions of viewers watching on television, Atlantis blasted off from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in eastern Florida on June 27, 1995.
