Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?[]

In Episode 7, The Unknown Explorer witnesses the bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 1945. His clues lead the Time Pilots to the tail end of World War II. During the Data Boost, it is revealed that television, pay phones, and jet planes existed in 1945, but not nuclear submarines or stereo records.

In Episode 39, Kevin receives some clues in the Chronoskimmer's molecular generator. These clues are a vacuum tube with the label "x 18,000" and a foot with the label "98". Kevin figures out that these clues relate to the ENIAC computer, a 98-foot-long computer that ran on 18,000 vacuum tubes. This information leads the Time Pilots to the year 1945.
