    August 15, 1977: Jerry R. Ehman detects the Wow! signal, a radio signal, while working on a SETI project at the Big Ear radio telescope of Ohio State University. It lasted for 72 seconds and seems to be of non-terrestrial and non-Solar System origin.

    September 11, 2001;
    Terrorists hijack four passenger planes and use them in suicide attacks that destroyed the World Trade Centre in New York City and damaged the Pentagon in Washington D.C. A fourth Plane crashed into a Pennsylvania field as the result of an attempt by the passengers to retake the plane after they found out what happened to the other three planes. Thousands lost their lives that day and will never be forgotten.
