Top 10 Biggest Events of 2021

Many big events that will affect the rest of the decade, especially after COVID-19 and the US presidential elections.
The Top Ten
1 Trump Supporters Storm the Capitol

Well, everyone has heard about this one. Maybe not Area 51, but it is still shocking to see such a thing on the news.

2 Elon Musk Becomes the World's Richest Person Elon Reeve Musk (born June 28, 1971) is a technology entrepreneur, investor, and engineer who is best known for being the CEO of companies such as Tesla, SpaceX, PayPal, and X (formerly known as Twitter).

He became richer than Jeff Bezos. This is what happens when you invest in the right things at the right time.

3 Villages Massacres in Niger

Terrorists killed about 100 people in villages in western Niger. Sadly, this happens almost every day, but the media cares more about Kim Kardashian than this. Also, it may happen again because the criminals who did this were not caught.

4 Death of Satya Paul

A very famous Indian fashion designer died at the age of 78 while practicing yoga.

5 Death Carlos do Carmo

A Portuguese singer died at the age of 81. He was a super famous person there.

6 The Border Between Saudi Arabia and Qatar Reopens

They closed the borders for years. This has affected many people in Saudi Arabia, like my uncle, who was going to get a job in Qatar but could not because of this. This siege finally ended after years.

7 Sulawesi Earthquake

An earthquake in Indonesia killed 70 people. It is very horrible to die like this. May God have mercy on them.

8 Death of Elias Rahbani

A Lebanese musician died because of COVID-19 at the age of 83. He had a really long career.

9 Kamala Harris Becomes the First Female and Black Vice-President of the United States
10 President Joe Biden is Inaugurated 46th President of the USA

He replaced Trump for the time being.

Also, he's better than Donald Trump.

The Contenders
11 Donald Trump Gets Impeached for the Second Time
12 Donald Trump Gets Acquitted for the Second Time
13 Covid-19 Vaccines Become Widely Available

I'm shocked to have to be adding this.

14 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Win the Super Bowl

It went off with The Weeknd performing the halftime show and gained over 99 million views when it happened.

15 Death of Prince Philip

The Duke of Edinburgh was just two months away from turning 100. R.I.P. Prince George.

16 The Disbandment of Daft Punk

This was actually bigger than the Perseverance rover landing on Mars. Daft Punk was arguably the band of EDM and produced some of the greatest house music of all time. Known for One More Time, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Robot Rock, Get Lucky, and more. On February 22, 2021, they announced their breakup after 28 years in a YouTube video titled Epilogue. They were the Beatles of EDM. Dance music will never be the same again, and there won't be another band like them. Long live Daft Punk.

17 Helio Castroneves Wins His Fourth Indianapolis 500
18 Sriwijaya Air Boeing 737 Plane Crash in Indonesia

It has been a really bad year for this country. Sadly, the plane crashed, killing 62 people.

19 2021 Myanmar Coup D'├ętat
20 Perseverance Rover Landing on Mars

NASA made epic history by landing the Perseverance rover on Mars after a 7+ month trip. They landed it the same way they landed Curiosity (back in 2012), and it was 7 minutes of terror leading up to the landing. Yet, it took approximately 11.5 minutes for the signal to travel from Mars to Earth (given Mars was about 11.5 light minutes away from Earth at the time). Perseverance plans on looking for signs of life on Mars, which would be unbelievably historic news for all of us.

21 Texas Power Grid Failure

Texas's worst natural disaster since Hurricane Harvey.

22 25+ People Killed in the Beni Region of the Democratic Republic of Congo

A massacre in the DRC by the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF). They have killed 25 people. Sadly, this happens weekly in this country.

23 Death of Dustin Diamond

Known for playing Sam "Screech" Powers from Saved by the Bell, he played his role in every incarnation and was truly funny. Though he did make mistakes that led to getting arrested, there was a silver lining in him, and he made the world laugh. He was, without a doubt, one of the greatest actors on TV and will never be forgotten. He lost his battle to lung cancer at 44. R.I.P. Dustin Diamond 1977-2021.

24 Death of Sophie

The legendary musician who fused techno, trance, and other forms of EDM with pop to create hyperpop (which paved the way for songs by A.G. Cook, M.I.A., Die Antwoord, Charli XCX, Slayyyter, Hannah Diamond, and Kim Petras) fell to her death after climbing her roof to get a good look at the moon. She was 34. R.I.P.
