1926 - Josephine Baker: The black Venus

On October 2, 1925, she opened in Paris at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, where she became an instant success for her erotic dancing and for appearing practically nude on stage. After a successful tour of Europe, she reneged on her contract and returned to France to star at the Folies Bergères, setting the standard for her future acts. She performed the Danse sauvage, wearing a costume consisting of a skirt made of a string of artificial bananas. Baker's success coincided (1925) with the Exposition des Arts Décoratifs, which gave birth to the term "Art Deco", and also with a renewal of interest in ethnic forms of art, including African. Baker represented one aspect of this fashion. In later shows in Paris she was often accompanied on stage by her pet cheetah, Chiquita, who was adorned with a diamond collar. The cheetah frequently escaped into the orchestra pit, where it terrorized the musicians, adding another element of excitement to the show.

1927 - Charles Lindbergh: flies across the Atlantic

Charles Augustus Lindbergh, Jr. was a pioneering United States aviator famous for piloting the first solo non-stop flight across the Atlantic Ocean in 1927. Lindbergh gained sudden international fame as the first pilot to fly solo and non-stop across the Atlantic Ocean, flying from Roosevelt Airfield (Nassau County, Long Island), New York City to Paris on May 20-May 21, 1927 in his single-engine airplane The Spirit of St. Louis. The plane had been custom built by Ryan Airlines of San Diego, California. He needed 33.5 hours for the trip. (His grandson Erik Lindbergh repeated this trip 75 years later in 2002.) Although Lindbergh was the first to fly from New York to Paris nonstop, he was not the first to make a Transatlantic flight. That had been done first by the crew of the NC-4 in 1919, with the first non-stop flight made by Alcock and Brown later that same year.

1954 - The Myth: Marilyn Monroe in Korea

Marilyn Monroe (June 1st, 1926 – August 5th, 1962) was a 20th century American actress. Her sizzling screen presence and premature death would make her a perennial sex symbol and later a pop icon. She played a variety of roles in many films. One of her most famous films is “The Seven Year Itch” which is a 1955 movie directed by Billy Wilder. The film was based on a play that starred Tom Ewell (but not Marilyn). It cost $1.8 million, a large budget for a movie in those days. The high price was partly incurred by Marilyn often fluffing her lines and requiring many retakes. This was because she had her mind elsewhere -- her marriage to Joe DiMaggio ended during the film shoot. The film, however, contains one of the most famous images of Marilyn Monroe when her dress is billowing up from an updraft from a grate.

1985 - Rock Hudson: becomes the first famous AIDS Victim

AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, sometimes written Aids) is a human disease characterized by progressive destruction of the bodys immune system. AIDS is caused by Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection. To date, there are no cures for either HIV infection nor AIDS, which are chronic medical conditions, but which are treatable by a variety of antiretroviral drugs. This treatment delays the progression of HIV infection to AIDS, and reduces the rates of morbidity and mortality attributable to the disease.

AIDS: Rock Hudson becomes the first celebrity victim of AIDS, the search begins for "patient zero" - 4min.

AIDS becomes front page news in 1985 when Rock Hudson announces his homosexuality, and also that he is carrying the disease. The disease starts to spread within the homosexual community, and researchers struggle to contain the disease. They begin to look for "Patient Zero," or the first carrier of the disease within the US. Soon this search leads to a Canadian flight attendant. Rock Hudson died less than 3 months after he announced he was suffering from the disease, on October 2, 1985.

Albert Einstein: Einstein on board the ship, walking in the woods with friends

Albert Einstein, 14 March 1879–18 April 1955) was a theoretical physicist, philosopher and author who is widely regarded as one of the most influential and best known scientists and intellectuals of all time. He is often regarded as the father of modern physics. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect." His many contributions to physics include the special and general theories of relativity, the founding of relativistic cosmology, the first post-Newtonian expansion, explaining the perihelion advance of Mercury, prediction of the deflection of light by gravity and gravitational lensing, the first fluctuation dissipation theorem which explained the Brownian movement of molecules, the photon theory and wave-particle duality, the quantum theory of atomic motion in solids, the zero-point energy concept, the semiclassical version of the Schrödinger equation, and the quantum theory of a monatomic gas which predicted Bose–Einstein condensation. Einstein published more than 300 scientific and over 150 non-scientific works; he additionally wrote and commentated prolifically on various philosophical and political subjects. His great intelligence and originality has made the word "Einstein" synonymous with genius.

Albert Einstein: Flees Nazi Germany to America

Albert Einstein fled Nazi Germany for good, moving to the United States. He later became an American citizen and he remained in the United States for the rest of his life. Einstein had won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 and was respected the world over. In January 1933, Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany and very quickly legalized professional discrimination and persecution of Jews. Einstein, realizing the danger, left Germany forever. Prominent German physicists, led by Einstein's fellow Nobel Prize winners Philipp Lenard and Johannes Stark, initiated the Deutsche Physik (German physics) movement to discredit Einstein's work as Judische Physik (Jewish Physics).Albert Einstein, 14 March 1879–18 April 1955) was a theoretical physicist, philosopher and author who is widely regarded as one of the most influential and best known scientists and intellectuals of all time.
