5. Man Lands in Mars
You have to agree looking at our history of where we came from. From a group of hunters and gatherers, to building Cars, Airplanes and even Rockets that flew us to the Moon and back. We have come along way to landing a rover in Mars. In a period of just 100 years, we have invented everything from Airplanes, Rockets, Satellites, Flying Cars, Computers, Telephone, iphones, iPads,manipulated the crop to be weather proof and everything else you can think of. For someone who is 100 years old today, they have seen it all, the best and worst of man.

1. Yangtze River in China turns red.
This definitely goes on my top list. I mean how often does the 3rd longest river in the world turn red? Okay twice for China, but you gotta admit, it is quite interesting.
Happy New Year Everyone! May Allah fill our homes with his peace and may he grant us his blessings in this world and in the hereafter In Sha Allah.
