Science and Technology


Science and Technology, explores how the advances of World War II led to Cold War competition, and how government-sponsored research helped to send humans to the moon, to harness the atom for good and bad, and to pave the way for the Internet. It also examines how private industry in the West gained from those “Big Science” projects and opened up avenues in biotech and personal computing, among other fields. The last chapters also explore the ethical challenges raised by recent scientific developments, such as genetic engineering and drone technology.
