Perhaps space programs indirectly affected the big trends, even if spy satellites cannot be credited with preventing World War III. Could, for example, the current surge of globalization have derived some of its momentum from an enhanced awareness that we are all in the same boat, all stuck on the same small blue dot spinning through the darkness? 28 My view is the best answer is: yes, but not much. If no one had ever seen photos of earth from space, and if information from India and Indonesia still arrived by telegraph and took a day or two to reach other continents instead of a second or two, would globalization be substantially different?
Besides the astronauts, no individual in the public eye during that time personified the ingenuity, daring, and resourcefulness required to send humans to the moon than Wernher von braun. Von braun’s legacy has been a contested one. S. space program: for many years, von braun’s “rocket team” was square and center in the american space narrative that began with the capture of V-2 rockets at the end of World War II and ended with apollo 11. a group of influential historians invested in maintaining von braun’s legacy have ensured the continuing prominence of this narrative (often called the “huntsville School” of historiography), one that traces the roots of the american space program, particularly the apollo project, to the V-2 rocket and its brilliant designers in germany during the interwar years.
In the 18th century, britain and France competed for geopolitical dominance in several parts of the world, and in that context sponsored scientists and scientific expeditions to gather useful information, whether about medicinal plants, trees suitable for naval timber, or a thousand other things that might come in useful one day. When Napoleon conquered egypt in 1798, he loosed a team of scholars and scientists upon the country to ransack it for information (and art) of all sorts. When Jefferson purchased half a continent from Napoleon in 1803, he bankrolled Lewis and Clark to take a preliminary inventory of what he had bought.
