    In my eyes (American here), the following have been the ten largest turning points since the year 2000 (non-Internet):

    September 11th attacks
    Completion of the Human Genome Project
    Evidence of flowing water on Mars
    Demonstrated existence of the Higgs Boson
    Spread of the Ebola Virus
    Hurricane Katrina
    2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake/Tsunami
    Disintegration of the Columbia
    The Financial crisis of 2007?08
    Release of Paul Blart Mall Cop 2

    What say you?

    I thought it was pretty momentous when I was born.
