July 20 is a historic day and in fact, in the words of Neil Armstrong it is a day of ‘a giant leap for mankind’ because for the first time a human walked on the surface of the moon. Not only that, space exploration attained a new high when spacecraft ‘Viking 1 Lander’ became the first to successfully land on the surface of Mars in 1976. It was a golden day for sports as well because the first international ‘Special Olympics Summer Games’ was held on this day. Apart from this, the Football Association legalized professionalism in football and Czechoslovakia’s Emil Zatopek won the 10,000 meter race in the Olympics and broke his own record. The U.S and Cuba agreeing to normalize relations between them makes July 20 a landmark in the history of politics because this step was taken after 54 years. Several agreements like the Corfu Declaration and Montreux Convention were signed on this date. This day is also special because Sirimavo Bandaranaike became the first woman prime minister in the world, the ‘Ford Motor Company’ sold its first car and ‘G-men’ or ‘Gangbusters’ show made its debut. Intellectual property was given due right even in Napolean’s time as the Pyréolophore was granted a patent then. Also, Mahlon Loomis was granted the first patent in wireless telegraphy. These immense achievements make this day purely unforgettable.
