A dozen amazing things that were unimaginable when I was a little kid:

A human-made camera in orbit around Saturn, taking a photo of the earth.

A Black President in the White House.

A woman as Secretary of State.

A woman in charge of the Fed.

A woman as CEO of a company she didn’t start herself.

Every car equipped with seat belts and air bags.

Cars that run upwards of 100,000 miles.

Mobile phones that function as tiny computers and cameras

Solar panels that actually work.

The Colorado River threatening to run dry, depicted in an eye-popping graphic.

Open-source classical music you can access or download free of charge — as digitized music or as scores.
