In 1789 The Judiciary Act is passed by Congress and signed by President George Washington . It established the Supreme Court of the United States, as a tribunal made up of six justices.
In 1869 Thousands of businessmen were financially ruined after a panic on Wall Street. The panic was caused by an attempt to corner the gold market, by Jay Gould and James Fisk.
They started hoarding gold, which led to high gold prices, but when they tried to sold at a high price The US Treasury also sold a large amount of gold. This led to a plummet in gold prices within the span of minutes. The sell-off was done under the orders of President Ulysses S. Grant who’s effort avoided a national depression.
The event was called the Black Friday.
In 1948 Honda Motor Company is founded by Soichiro Honda, in Japan.
He first started out as a piston ring manufacturer for Toyota, but his manufacturing plant was destroyed during a B-29 bomber attack in 1944. Then an earthquake caused his other plant to collapse in 1945.
Honda was a courageous pilot and engineer, so he did not give up. He began building Motorized Bicycles which had great success.
No wonder Honda is now the world’s largest producer of motorcycles.
The first car built by Honda was the S500.
Starting with the first car Honda had an impressive development, and it is now producing 14 million engines per year.
This makes Honda the world’s largest manufacturer of internal combustion engines, measured by volume.
The Accord Was The First Foreign Car Made In The US. This is because Honda has sold millions of them in the United States alone, so it made sense to build the Accord in the U.S.
A little known fact is that Honda was selling a hybrid one year prior to the Toyota Prius. Honda was also the first manufacturer to offer hydrogen-powered vehicles in the U.S.
The company was the first manufacturer to actually use VTEC – Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control it in a production vehicle. Their idea is now applied to most of the cars in order to boost the efficiency and power of their engines.
Honda also developed ASIMO – Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, an android designed to help those who have limited mobility due to physical impediments.
The robot is 130cm tall and weighs 48kg. The recent models can walk at a max speed of 12km per hour.
Honda doesn’t just do transportation vehicles and walking robots. The company makes snowblowers, boat motors and even exports soybeans.
In 1960 The first nuclear powered aircraft carrier was launched. The USS Enterprise set out from Newport News.
At 1123 feet (342 m) it is the longest naval vessel ever built.
In October 1962, Enterprise was dispatched to the first international crisis started by the suspicions that the Soviet Union was constructing nuclear missile launch sites in Cuba.
The final reactor was defueled and the ship was decommissioned in 2017.
