Four that are connected: First Hydrogen bomb test, first flight of B52, laying of the keel of the Nautilus and the introduction of the NSA.


On a more positive note, the first jet passenger service, building of the UN and the Today Show started [that's a pretty long run].


And they found a viking ship off Boston. Chris Columbus could not be reached for comment.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
