Sputnik;it was the first time I and many others really think space travel was something other than science fiction.

The first was going outside to watch Sputnick go through the sky.
The second was the Kennedy assasination.

I was born in 1986 in St.Petersburg (Russia), which can be seen in my profile, and probably the first historical event I remember was the war in Jugoslavia, when Americans started bombarding Belgrad. I do not remember exactly when it happened; I think in 1999 or so. I was nearly 15 at that time. Definitely my memory now allows me to recollect things that happened when I was younger, but all those events were not so world-shaking as those I am talking about here. I think those events changed the world because some time later Jugoslavia ceased to exist and was divided into Serbia and Montenegro. Nowadays politicians argue about the reasons and purposes of that war and many different versions are suggested. I think it would not be a good idea to say here what we heard on the Russian TV. Many people will strongly dislike what we think about it. I myself know nothing about the true reasons, but of course I have some suspicions. Most of them coincide with the official position of the country where I live.
