Some other ideas:
  • 2100 - Leap year is skipped for the first time since 1900. (2000 was a leap year, and so will 2400, as they are divisible by 400)
  • 2178 - Happy first "Plutonian Birthday", Pluto!
  • 2492 - On May 6, the orbits of the eight planets and Pluto will all be within the same 90-degree arc of the Solar System, according to Jean Meeus.
  • 2623 - The first layer of Manfred Laber's Time Pyramid (Zeitpyramide) is completed.
  • 2983 - The second layer of Manfred Laber's Time Pyramid (Zeitpyramide) is completed.
  • 3143 - The third layer of Manfred Laber's Time Pyramid (Zeitpyramide) is completed.
  • 3183 - The fourth and final layer of Manfred Laber's Time Pyramid (Zeitpyramide) is completed.

A friend of mine posted this on SkyscraperCity:
The break up of the UK is underway, I tentatively have the following timeline:

2024 - Scotland votes to leave the UK
2032 - Scotland concludes negotiations and formally issues their declaration of independence
2035 - Northern Ireland announces closer ties with Ireland, calls for vote on future with 3 options: remain in UK, become independent state, unify with Ireland. Unification/independence is a coin flip at the moment. Result is still NI wishes to leave the UK
2040 - Wales calls for independence vote, NI concludes negotiations to leave the UK and either unifies with Ireland or declares independence
2042 - Welsh independence vote won by yes

2022 - Completion of the Grace Hopper subsea cable

"...one of the first new cables to connect the U.S. and the U.K. since 2003, and the first investment by Google in a private subsea cable route to the U.K. and the first-ever route to Spain. [...]

"The Grace Hopper cable consists of 16 fiber pairs (32 fibers), with 22Tbps per fiber pair and a total of 352Tbps system capacity, a significant upgrade to the internet infrastructure connecting the U.S. with Europe."
