GO DOWN IN HISTORY: meaning and examples

Good morning,

Yesterday we revised a Daily Vitamin that we had originally sent in May 2006. Near the end of the lesson, I wrote the following:

I hope today goes down in history as one of the more interesting of your life...

Today's expression is: to go down in history / to make history

Meaning: to be or do something so important that it will be recorded in history.

Example 1:
I think that, in the end, this project will go down in history as one of the best in the company.

Example 2:
The stock market has made history this week, reaching an all-time high.
