The biggest news story of 2019 was the impeachment of President Donald Trump. It was only the third time it’s happened in US History.  Another major story was the Mueller Report which vindicated the President of occluding with Russia for political gain in 2016.  The biggest news story in Kentucky was Andy Beshear’s upset of Governor Matt Bevin for the Governorship.  A few stories regarding space were huge.  China was the first nation in the world to land a space craft on the far side of the moon, and the first ever image of a black hole was captured by the Event Horizon Telescope.  Protesters lined the streets in Hong Kong, Boeing 737 MAX airplanes were grounded, Notre Dame Cathedral burns, and a successful stem cell transplant may lead to a cure for HIV.
