|The 1950s were a turning point in
American history. It was during this decade that
television and the microwave oven became popular, rock and roll music hit
the charts, electric musical instruments were
perfected, computers were being introduced, jet
airplanes replaced propeller-driven aircraft, space
exploration began, the civil rights movement
advanced, and the interstate highway system was
launched. Both Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were born
in the 1950s.
These are just a few of the extraordinary things that happened during the 1950s which significantly changed forever the way we live. Although much attention has been given to the 1960s for the achievements during that decade, it was really during the 50s when things really got started. The 60s were mostly a continuation of the things that had originated in the previous decade. The 1950s were when it really got started! Let's not forget it!
