Notable Event to to look forward to in 2020

Looking forward to the beginning of another beautiful year 2020 with great expectations other than being a numerically auspicious date that stands at the gateway of a fresh new decade.

2020

Meanwhile, the year 2020 will probably be like any other year: Full of confusing and depressing events that will make you wish Earth had some sort of eject button.

But, to to be Frank, statistically speaking, there must be some good things, too.

There may even be several good things! In fact, we’ve counted at least 20 good, interesting or otherwise noteworthy things that will happen in 2020.

Note this in your bullet journal and hold on tight, because this decade is going to be a wild ride.

1. The 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo

We all love the Olympics, and its here again as the 2020 games will feature five new sports: Karate, baseball/softball, skateboarding, sports climbing and surfing, as well as a mess of new events in already established categories.

And in a tech-savvy, culturally rich city like Tokyo, the games are bound to be particularly festive.

2. The US elections

Amidst so many drama and controversy, the US 2020 Presidential race is still an important time in US history and it will affect us all.

11 states will be holding gubernatorial elections this year, so there’s a chance the fabric of our country could change significantly in a very short period.

3. The Mars 2020 mission

The Mars 2020 rover will join the Curiosity rover on the Red Planet, which hopefully means Curiosity.

Any time scientists get to be rock stars is a time worth celebrating, and the Mars 2020 rover is fully tricked out and ready to roll.

It has 23 cameras and two microphones to capture the sounds of the rover landing as well as the haunting, desolate Martian winds that follow.

4. A newly opened Washington Monument

Tourists from around the world can now go up to the top of the 555-foot obelisk at the heart of our nation’s capital and gaze out like kings at the tidy grid of humanity below.

However, for almost three years, the Washington Monument has been closed to the public while it gets a new security screening area and elevator system.

It seems like a long time, but when it comes to elevators, it’s always good to err on the side of caution. Everything should be back up and running for tourists in September.

5. A total eclipse

Watchers of the eclipse are making plans to congregate in Argentina and stare up at the cosmic spectacle (while safely bespectacled, of course).

The solar eclipse will shade the region in brief darkness on December 14, but there are other fun space things happening right around the same time.

The Geminid meteor shower will spangle the sky the night before, and a special alignment of Jupiter and Saturn a week later will complete a rare space nerd trifecta.

6. An innovative year in Dubai

The glitzy Arabian city Dubai will host the 2020 World Expo for half the year.

Expo 2020 is like a World’s Fair, with 192 countries showcasing the newest in art, technology, science and countless other spheres.

Expo 2020 will center around a huge, specially built indoor-outdoor area between Dubai and the northern border of neighboring Abu Dhabi.

7. A new decade

A new year a new beginning, then what does a decade mean? We have a whole 10 years to shape the trends, events and questionable hairstyle choices that will forever be associated with the 2020’s.

We are the makers of our own destiny. Let’s get to it.
