Passing of Time

239 years ago we had just declared independence and were about to go to war with cannons, muskets and sailing ships.  150 years ago were just recovering from the civil war having ended slavery in America.  112 years ago the wright brothers flew the first heavier than air aircraft.  78 years ago the Hindenburg fell from the sky on fire.  70 years ago we flew an armada of bombers half way across the Pacific Ocean to drop an atomic bomb on Japan.  46 years ago man set foot on the moon.  Now we have electric cars, a worldwide communications network known as the Internet, space probes that have left our solar system and robots on other planets.
