When the citizens of the distant future look back on the 20th century, they will surely remember it as the time when human beings took to the sky. Images of flight already dominate our memory of the century past. In the fall of 1999, USA Today and the Newseum, an Arlington, Va., museum devoted to the history of news gathering, announced the results of a year-long poll in which 36,000 newspaper readers and a substantial number of journalists were asked to select the top 100 news stories of the century. The atomic bombing of Japan led the public list, followed by the attack on Pearl Harbor, the landing on the moon and the invention of the airplane. The journalists choose precisely the same top four stories, although they did reverse the moon landing and the attack on Pearl Harbor. —From the Final Report for the Centennial of Flight Commemoration, April 2004.
