The Mars Exploration Rover, Spirit, landed on Mars on January 4th, 2004. Planned for a 90 Sol mission, but has exceeded her expectations and is still collecting data today.


Facebook was originally a website that had the photos of the students attending Harvard (at the time). It would then be voted whether the student was "hot or not", however it was shut down almost immediately. The next year later, at the beginning of 2004, Facebook became a social network between the members of Harvard then other colleges. Later in the year it was available to the public.

South Korean Cloning

In 2004, Dr. Hwang Woo Suk, a researcher on human stem cells, claims to have found a way to clone human cells and with this technology allow people who cannot walk to be able to do so. A few years later, however, this information is proved to be forged.


In 2004, NASA's X-43A Scamjet flies at Mach 9.6, the equivalent of 7,000 miles per hour, and breaks the world record.

North Korea and Its Nuclear Bombs

North Korea, on February 10th, 2005, openly admits to having nuclear bombs in response of the threat stating to be coming from the United States.


Youtube was founded in February 2005. One year later it was sold off to Google.

Pluto is a planet no more...

In 2006, astronomers have claimed that planets have to orbit around the sun, round due to its own gravity, and "control its surroundings". Meaning that orbiting satellites (if planet has one) have to be considerably smaller and planet's orbital path must be distinguished. Pluto's moon is only half Pluto's size and has no certain path, therefore it has been dubbed a dwarf planet.


On March 21st of 2006, Twitter's founder, Jack Dorsey, sends out the first tweet, "just setting up my twttr." Dorsey started Twitter as a side project for something to do after he got home for work. Eventually it evolved into a greater project where other people and companies got involved until it what it is today.
