Why does the History Channel show Modern Marvels if that stuff is currently happening and didn't happen in the past?

to broaden their audience appeal, and to educate their viewers. Think about the saying "history in the making." History is happening all around us at any moment of every day. As each second passes by, words, actions and events become pieces of history. So even though the the buildings, structures and technologies shown on Modern Marvels are not from the 1800s or the Victorian Era, they are still historical in nature and hence, appropriately belong on the History Channel.
