Washington, D.C. – The Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28th, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France officially ended World War I, also known as “The Great War”.
However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11th, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

Geneva borders France to the east side, and the locals celebrated the victory for hours, horns honking as each vehicle drove by the crowd of people. Among the gathering was an Austin Peay alum, standing in awe by the abnormality in front of him.

Three studies published earlier this year, using six or more years of data from NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, have broadened the mission’s dark matter hunt using some novel approaches.
