The static — the search for a strange space sound helps prove the Big Bang Theory

Two astronomers discover a curious sound in space that will drive them to madness — or at least have them chasing pigeons for two years — and give us a new perspective on the universe.

The manicure — a Hollywood star helps spark a new industry for Vietnam War refugees

The Key — the missing key that sinks the Titanic

After the RMS Titanic hit an iceberg in 1912, killing more than 1,500 people, an inquest was held to find out how it happened. Theories abound, but there is one fact that stands out from the court proceedings: if David Blair hadn't been fired, the Titanic — and all the people on board — might have been saved.

The Doughnut — the delicious treat that makes war more palatable for the American people

America has a reputation for supporting war efforts, but this wasn’t always the case. Mere months before they joined World War I, the US voted in a landslide victory to keep the peace.

The Rabbit — the lucky rabbit that transforms Walt Disney from animator into Empire

Walt Disney’s first great success wasn’t a cartoon mouse.

The Coin — the gold coin donation that kills Marie Antoinette

Queen Marie Antoinette is infamous for provoking the 18th century French Revolution with her excessive spending.
