 New Year’s Eve in 1999 was a significant date because it was the
     last day of the Millennium. A lot of people were worried about the
     Millennium Bug (or Y2K Bug) because they thought it would affect
     computers at midnight on New Year’s Eve. Before this date,
     computers used just two numbers to represent the year (e.g.
     97,98,99). No one was sure what would happen when computers
     changed to 00. Would they think it was 1900? Would the major
     computers in the world crash? In fact, almost nothing happened!

 Dolly the Sheep was the world’s first cloned animal. She was
     cloned in Edinburgh, Scotland, and lived until the age 6. The
     Scientific American magazine called Dolly the “world’s most
     famous sheep.”
