What were some global events in the 60's?
Well, Apollo 1 burned, killing the crew. The Berlin wall went up. The US got (more) involved with Viet Nam. "Free love" changed social rules. The military-industrial complex became all-powerful. Jack Kennedy was killed. 1000's of servicemen were lost. We landed on the moon (I think). Hippies came and...left. The gov't started clean air & water acts. Equal rights. The Beatles. ICBMs, atomic power plants, supertankers, jumbo jets developed. Nice
