What is the Millennial Generation's Man on the Moon?

Note: this post contains information about the May 25, 2014 episode of Mad Men. I don't consider the information to have spoilers, but proceed with caution if you haven't watched it and don't want to know any details.

On last night's episode of Mad Men the date in history was in July 1969 when Neil Armstrong and the Apollo 11 crew landed and walked on the moon. Everyone on the show was huddled around their televisions watching the event. Everyone talked about it leading up to and after the moon landing. It was interesting to see a whole country (as depicted by the show) in a unified interest and consciousness.

It got me thinking, what is our generation's, the Millennial generation's, Moon Landing? What is it that we all sat around and watched in awe? My husband suggested 9-11, which did have everyone huddled around their TVs, but I'm looking for something awe inspiring yet not horror inducing.

What is the Millennial Generation's Moon Landing Experience?


  1. So...I just finished watching this episode. The first thing that comes to mind is the OJ Simpson trial. Lol It was awe inspiring to some, awful for others...

    1. I should clarify. Not the entire trial, but the verdict.
