1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War

Age 1

The Berlin Blockade was the first major crises of the Cold War. The Soviet Union blocked all access to the sectors of Berlin under Western control and offered to drop the blockade if the newly introduced Deutsche Mark was removed from West Berlin. The Berlin Blockade showed the different ideological and economic visions for postwar Europe. Even though there wasn't any fire fight during the cold war, many of these skirmishes arose and almost caused nuclear war on multiple occasions.
1952 · Uranium in Moab

Age 5

Uranium mining in Utah has a history going back more than 100 years but, it started as a byproduct of vanadium mining. With the development of Nuclear Weapons, Utah saw a uranium boom in the late 1940s and early 1950s, but uranium mining declined near the end of the Cold War. Currently Uranium is still being mined but just a small amount for power plants and for research.
1958 · The First U.S. Satellite in Space

Age 11

Explorer 1 was the first satellite of the United States to be launched and successfully orbit the Earth.

Name Meaning

1 English: occupational name, from Middle English bakere, Old English bæcere, a derivative of bacan ‘to bake’. It may have been used for someone whose special task in the kitchen of a great house or castle was the baking of bread, but since most humbler households did their own baking in the Middle Ages, it may also have referred to the owner of a communal oven used by the whole village. The right to be in charge of this and exact money or loaves in return for its use was in many parts of the country a hereditary feudal privilege. Compare Miller . Less often the surname may have been acquired by someone noted for baking particularly fine bread or by a baker of pottery or bricks.2 Americanized form of cognates or equivalents in many other languages, for example German Bäcker, Becker; Dutch Bakker, Bakmann; French Boulanger. For other forms see Hanks and Hodges ( 1988 ).
