Probably either has to be the Atom Bomb or the Lunar Landing. Summarising 100 years in one picture is an impossible task especially since humanity grew so fast in so many areas, so quickly. There is less than a lifetime between the Wright Brothers and Apollo 11. That fact allone already blows my mind.
And if you’re looking for a negative photo you’d probably have to take some kind of image where Regan and Thatcher meet, because they both fucked us over to an extent we still feel today.
