20th century: The PC, nukes
21st century: 9/11, Bitcoin(may be).... its still early, 14 years only Cool
I guess 9/11 Terrorist Attacks was a major event in the history . .The destruction had undoubtedly damaged economy in the country, but then it also pushed US to control terrorism..

Taking in account that the moon landing (besides a few more landings after) marks the practical end of new steps in that direction, since we never done something similar since Apolo 17, in 1972, i wonder if we can consider it as important.

Did the moon landing ended the cold war or was a consequence of the cold war (rivalry between US and SU)...

9/11 was undoubtedly a horrifying event... And according to me, such events only happen when move into the extreme limits of any political system or belief...
The act was wrong.. But the way US reacted was also wrong.. The last against Muslims was disgusting.. The punishment of an act committed by few terrorists should not be used to judge the Muslim community as a whole across the globe

The Stock Market Crash of 2008

Rock Bottom

In September of 2008, the American economy was sent reeling. The New York Stock Exchange plummeted on numerous occasions. The stock market fell 345 points in one day on September 5th. By the end of the month, the stock market had lost 20% of its entire value.

Very true, I can see why the 9/11 Conspiracy theorists say it fuels an agenda of the USA to invade other countries that said what happened after was also incredible, far less luggage, body scanners, and all the restrictions on basic travel.

Nope. It was the Nazis who first developed the nuclear weapons. But they never got the chance to use them. Even the USA developed the nuclear weapons based on the Nazi technology.

although not a single event, for the 19th century I would add emergence of nationalism in the Western world in the modern sense of the term, i.e. the strong feeling of identity binding together communities of peopl,e surpassing social, confessional or other differences among them. there were many "nationalistic" notions before modern period but there were to some extent always dependent on some special conditions and thus limited to special group of society... but since the 19th century nattionalism became a "mass movement" and has influenced the course of history sinbce. it seems to me that nowadays people (in Europe at least) can barely view the world without taking it into account.

In the 20th, the Great Depression was definitely a turning point, if not for the event itself, then for the events following it, the introduction of Keynesian economics and so on.
Post WWII and the development of the military industrial complex continues to shape the world as we know it.

"up until around that point in time," not to mention that it was the first time that a bomb was dropped on an entire population of people.. which sent ripples across the world. up until that point, there was only a threat of it happening. i know the russians tested bombs near a village, and the radiation wreaked havoc.. but it's not the same thing.

The financial and economic crash of 2008, the worst in over 75 years, and was a major geopolitical setback for the United States and Europe. This damage has put the American model of free-market capitalism under a cloud .

What you all will say about “The Great Tsunami”?. Of all tsunamis, the worst that the world ever faced was the Indian Ocean tsunami of 26th December, 2004. It had originated near Indonesia, and had submerged quite a few islands from Indonesia, Sri Lanka and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. Indira Point no longer exists as the southernmost tip of India.

Russians tested the nuclear weapons in remote sparsely inhabited areas, such as Novaya Zemlya in the Arctic and Kamchatka.

He is talking about the 400 experiments in northern Kazakhstan where they build and a new city just for that of course with work power from the traditional soviets labor camps.

The site was cleaned and the waste removed not long ago in 2010 2012 after being abandoned for 20 years.

yeah, vice recently did a piece on how it has affected the khazakstanis.. it was the chernobyl before chernobyl.

another event that changed the course of human history: agriculture. up until that point, we were nomadic, moving from place to place as the natural resources permitted. it allowed the settling of cities.

What do you think were the most significant events of the 19th, 20th or 21st century? Wars, Revolutions, Political Ideology, Technological innovations? What events do you think truly changed the world?

19th Telephone
20th Internet
21st To Be Decided but I'll say a future development in Nanotechnology or Artificial Intelligence

21st century.. AI, robots.. and how it affects the human economy. more and more, we're going to see our jobs taken over by robots. that's going to lead to a decrease in jobs, which means a wider gap between the people who own and operate the robots and the people who don't. inequality is inevitable.
