3 Landing on the Moon

It still blows my mind we were able to achieve this. What's next, a frigging gas giant landing?

This will be more important in the future because it will mark the first time that people went on a place other than earth. - Harri666

In 10,000 years, only 2 things on this list will be remembered, the Moon Landing, and the first atomic warfare.

It is one little step for a man, but one giant leap for mankind

4 Industrial Revolution
5 Invention of the Internet

Started obesity epidemic, physical interface, pear-shaped bodies as the norm.

An average person in Europe uses internet two ours a day

6 World War I

To The End Of All Wars, Ends Nothings

The Hell Of The World

This should be number 1

The worst thing ever

7 Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

No offense america but you put the 9/11 bombings above this is insane yes the twin towers and the pentagon being destroyed was a tragedy but it fails in comparison to the amount of death and tragedy of the Japan bombings

The bombing at Hiroshima showed that man could destroy himself. The bombs also were the culmination of decades of racism against Asian peoples in America which was likely an extension of the global "East-West" conflict.

Huge events to be sure, but calling them "culmination of racism against Asian people" is so much revisionist claptrap.

8 The Neolithic Revolution

How was this not on here? Without it, we would still be nomads! - Turkeyasylum

Agricultural Revolution should be #1~

9 Discovering the New World

We wouldn't have bacon if it didn't happen

They didn't discover the new world, there were already native americans

A famous French explorer Christophe Colomb discovered America and new civilizations in 1492.

10 Woodstock

Changed the history showing the power of the hippie culture

A great thing to be sure, but not even the best thing that happened in 1969.

Not even close.

12 Gutenberg Invents the Printing Press

Rightly so, This has been voted as the highest the 1001-2000 millennium. The advent of the printing press brought reading to the masses. Could ideas like democrarcy have spread, revolutions have happened without this?

An indirect conflict between two sides: East, URSS and West, the American.

Also the disaster of getting your knickers in a twist overreaction of three cartoon Titanic movies because they had a fairytale ending instead of the disaster ending. (Oh ok, the second film just had the Octopus rescue, the rapping dog could've died in the first)

30 Last Manned American Rocket Launch

On July 18, 2011, America launched its last manned rocket, the 125th Shuttle, into space, putting an end to Manned American Rockets.
Almost a million people in the area, and those in the rest of the world, cheered for the entire minute, and cried nonstop afterwards, it has been one of the biggest, and saddest, days in modern history.

We'll never get to put Americans into space ever again with american technology, let alone Russians.
