2 November: A look at historic events that happened on this day


On 2 November 1976, Jimmy Carter, a Democrat who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 and served as Georgia’s governor from 1971 to 1975, was elected as the 39th president of the United States. He nearly defeated Gerald R. Ford, a Republican, in the presidential election. In 1978, under the presidency of Carter, the Camp David Accords, which were negotiated between Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, put an end to the state of war that had existed between the two nations since Israel’s foundation in 1948. After leaving office, Carter published a number of books including Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid (2006), We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land: A Plan That Will Work (2009), White House Diary (2010), The Virtues of Aging (1998), and more.

They worked with three visiting space shuttle crews to continue assembling the ISS as well as installing and activating the life support and communication systems throughout their four-month mission. In March 2001, the group travelled back to Earth in the space shuttle, Discovery.
