The Most Important Technological Developments to Come Out of America

 “Technology is best when it brings people together.”
Matt Mullenweg, Social Media Entrepreneur

I feel that the most amazing and important technological developments have come out of America. They include Apollo 11 maned flight to the moon, the mars rover, the internet, the personal computer, and the two space probe Voyagers.

“The Internet has been the most fundamental change during my lifetime and for hundreds of years.” Rupert Murdoch

I think that during my lifetime the biggest technological development has been the internet. 

“I think it’s fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we’ve ever created. They’re tools of communication, they’re tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.” Bill Gates

I use my laptop every day for researching my essays, entertainment, and communication.

The Mars Rover opened the scientific understanding of Mars.

I feel the biggest technological developments in history are the voyager space probes that have changed the way we understand the solar system.

“If one such civilization intercepts Voyager and can understand these recorded contents, here is our message: This is a present from a small distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts, and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours.” Unknown source from the internet

Perhaps the Voyagers 1 and 2 shall contact other civilizations yet I am not a strong believer in extra-terrestrials. However, I try to keep an open mind.

“The twin Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft are exploring where nothing from Earth has flown before. Continuing their more-than-40-year journey since their 1977 launches, they each are much farther away from Earth and the sun than Pluto. In August 2012, Voyager 1 made the historic entry into interstellar space, the region between stars, filled with material ejected by the death of nearby stars millions of years ago. Voyager 2 entered interstellar space on November 5, 2018, and scientists hope to learn more about this region. Both spacecraft are still sending scientific information about their surroundings through the Deep Space Network, or DSN.” Nasa Website

I feel man landing on the moon is amazing especially considering how much simpler technology was then compared to now.

I feel the best way that countries have developed positive relations in recent decades is when they worked together in space particularly in space stations.

“An international partnership of space agencies provides and operates the elements of the ISS. The principals are the space agencies of the United States, Russia, Europe, Japan, and Canada. The ISS has been the most politically complex space exploration program ever undertaken.” Google information

I feel the best way technology helps humanity can also be in much simpler technology than these for example such as the simple eye operations performed by the Fred Hollows Foundation can restore sight to people in the developing world for as little as twenty-five dollars. This is medical technology. Fred was Australian however Australia and America have close relations as nations and Australia and America have empathy for the less fortunate.
