1990 - When he was 37 years old, on April 24th, the Hubble telescope was launched into space after long delays due to the Challenger explosion. An optical flaw was found within weeks of launch but was fixed within three years. The discoveries made possible by the Hubble have contributed to scientists' understanding of the universe.

1997 - William was 44 years old when on June 26th, the first Harry Potter book by J. K. Rowling was released.
