With the signing of the Health Care Bill, I thought it might be interesting to post a few similar moments in history. Please post only videos that have historic significance.

The fifth Solvay conference was a historic physics conference on the foundations of quantum theory. Seventeen of the twenty-nine attendees ended up as Nobel Prize winners. Einstein, Bohr, Schrodinger, Heisenberg, and Dirac all attended.

Note the photo of Hannah Stilley Gorby, who was ~30 years old when the Declaration of Independence was signed, in 1776. Apparently her birth date preceeds that of anyone else ever photographed.
