The 1980's

The beginning of technology and globalization

The birth of the Millennial generation. Reagan, Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher. The end of the Cold War. The fall of the Berlin Wall. The Internet. Terrorist attacks in Beirut, Lockerbie, Scotland, Rome, Vienna, and El Salvador. Mt St Helen erupted and California experienced a 6.9 quake. The space shuttle Challenger blew up on take-off. The Exxon Valdez ran aground in Alaska, spilling hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil . . . the list goes on and on. This was a tumultuous decade, foreshadowing many events of the coming years.
