Only the European version. The original Chinese version (including movable type) didn't do so---it was shut down fairly quickly.

I second, but I'd have to include the entire race.

Trilobites were gone 188 million years when the chicxulube impactor hit.

I wasn’t around for the moon landings, otherwise I would chose that.

Rather, my favourite slice of history that I’ve lived to see has to be the moment the first time SpaceX’s orbital booster stuck the landing, like a scene straight out of a sci-fi movie. I watched that moment live and I can gladly state I was cheer-crying with everyone else:

Which one? There might be an infinite number. And while I am obviously biased toward the one that led to the iteration that I currently seem to reside in, I don't know that there isn't another one that I would like a whole lot better. This one might completely suck, for all I know.
