  • 7 wonders of the world.
  • Think "Extreme Sience".
  • electric networks, (rail)roads, satelite networks, ...
  • DNA sequencing - does this belong here? It's more of a milestone then an achievement ... Other milestones: in space exploration, in scientific research, in political and conceptual debate, ... Hmm, debate. That could be another path history can teach us : cycles. Natural, political, ICT, ...
