Arguably the worse accident in space exploration happened that day... Happened again in early 2003 albeit in a bit different scenario... considered I'm between in the 16-20 year old group... I'm sure you can figure it out.

Well, it happened 32 years before I was born. August 9, 1945 was the day the second atomic bomb was droped on Nagasaki, Japan.
Also, on August 9, 1970, a Peruvian Airlines jet carrying 45 US exchange students exploded.
It'd be nice if soething god happened on my birthday for once.

nothing on my exact birthday year, but something did occur on the exact day. on august 5th, 1952, a b-36 bomber crashed at Lindbergh Field in San Diego California, when the number 5 engine fell off the wing. Not a very sweet birthday gift, just hope it is not an omen lol.
