Did Anything Good Come Out of the Cold War?

Innovation Through Adversity

The Cold War was a conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union that partly manifested itself as a race to conquer space. The Soviet Union launched the first satellite into orbit in 1957, while twelve years later the United States put the first humans on the moon. Some of the many technological feats required for space travel trickled down into everyday life, such as satellite television, bar codes, and joysticks. This resource highlights innovations that arose from the Cold War, demonstrating how this long conflict helped shape today's world in some positive ways.
