Nasa focused on sending astronauts into low earth orbit (leo) with the 1973 launch of skylab, the first us space station, and the space shuttle the space shuttle served nasa for thirty years (1981–2011) and helped build the international space station (iss), an orbiting laboratory that has been. Beginning in the 1960s, close ties with the soviet union enabled the indian space research organisation to rapidly develop the indian space program and advance nuclear power in india even after the first nuclear test explosion by india on 18 may 1974 at pokhran india accounts for about 10% of all expenditure on. But these 10 high-tech breakthroughs stand out over the last 50 years because they've revolutionized the way americans live but the space race against the russians that dominated the national psyche (and a good chunk of the budget) in the '60s and '70s pushed the development of hundreds of enabling technologies,. It was published as a book a year later (213) (see entry for 1928) july 5: johannes winkler founds verein fur raumschiffahrt, vfr, (society for space travel) in breslau, germany die rakete magazine is started aug 10: space rockets experimental development by tsiolkovsky is published in ussr, engineers at.

Over 100 years, nasa's top 5 tech advances nasa, and its predecessor naca, helped develop computer chips, satellite communications and safer flight earlier this month, nasa celebrated the past 100 years and its achievements in flight, rockets, computers, and exploration naca was formed in. So complicated was the shuttle system, it could be argued, that every mission since then has been a test over the years, nasa fine-tuned the system with modifications large and small as the program's end nears, the knowledge gained over 30 years will be flying on its 134th flight reusable solid rocket boosters.
For the past 80 years, the united states has been integral in fundamental advances in telecommunications and technology for example, at&t's bell laboratories spearheaded the american technological revolution with a series of inventions including the first practical light emitted diode (led), the transistor, the c. “past history has shown that large development programs and technology development activities cannot and should not exist together, as a small hiccup in the development programs eats the budget of the basic research and technology advancement needed to accomplish more in space,” braun wrote. Meanwhile, china is moving boldly ahead with its own space-exploration efforts, and with little ambiguity about its mission the country recently announced it would conduct about 30 launches this year the target, if met, would be a record for china the country conducted 21 successful orbital-launch.
It may be some years now since the last time that man set foot on the moon, but it all started in 1957 when the russians fired sputnik 1 into space as the first man- made object to orbit the earth and heralded the birth of the space race when apollo 11 landed on the moon in 1969, the developments had. 50 years, 50 giant leaps: how nasa rocked our world before 1971, the average weight of breathing apparatus was more than 30 pounds in 1964, nasa developed a material capable of reflecting heat very effectively – a thin sheet of plastic coated with a metallic reflecting agent, usually gold or silver in. From space travel to healthcare, these are the 10 technology advances from 2014 that make us the most excited about the future for much of the last year on developing alternatives to the “spyware 20” (balkan's own terminology) technologies like dropbox, facebook, google, and even your smartphone.
We've had a rather breathless 12 months of space travel, taking us from the moon to pluto and beyond here we look at 10 great developments.

Undaunted, we've put together a list of 10 super-advanced technologies that should be around by the year 2100 once greater-than-human intelligence emerges in a machine—a development that could happen as early as the 2050s —all bets are off in terms of what's technically possible intelligent. In the past half-century, scientific and technological advances have transformed our world pm convened a panel of 25 experts to identify innovations that have made the biggest impact, from the hospital to outer space to the kitchen here, then, are the breakthroughs of our time by alex hutchinson nov 30. Is it possible to determine which 30 innovations have changed life most dramatically during the past 30 years from the vast number of entries, the wharton judges first had to define what innovation means in an age dominated by digital technology, medical advancements and mobile communications.
