Three things that helped shape our modern world happened on July 16th:
1945 – The first atomic bomb was exploded in Alamogordo, New Mexico.
1969 – Apollo 11, the first manned mission to land on the moon is launched at Cape Canaveral in Florida.
1971 – Corey Feldman was born in California.
Only time and history will tell which of these things did more to advance, or destroy humanity.
