On Vulcan and Andoria, this decade is marked by repercussions of their First Contact with border disputes, lasting for the next 200 years. (ENT: "Proving Ground")

On Earth, scientific breakthroughs are made by the USSR which develops the H-bomb and eventually the satellite Sputnik, which ushered the Human Space Age as the first object to exit Earth. This event attracted Vulcan explorers who discreetly lingered in Pennsylvania before rescued, but not before introducing some of their technology to humans. (ENT: "Carbon Creek")

The USA creates the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as a response to this "space race".

This decade also saw productivity in arts and entertainment with film releases such as Shane, The Searchers, The Court Jester, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Sunset Boulevard, From Here to Eternity, To Catch a Thief, Wages of Fear and b-movies such as Revenge of the Creature and Bride of the Corpse. The popular music genre known as Rock 'n roll also born in this decade, with performers like Elvis Presley and Roy Orbison. Television becomes a popular form of entertainment, which it remains until 2040. Shows in this decade include Howdy Doody, I Love Lucy, The Untouchables and The Twilight Zone.
