  1. Chapter 36Global Interdependence: 1960-Present (51 years ago – Present) Section 1: The Impact of Science and Technology

  2. From the 1950s to the 1970s, the United States and Soviet Union competed to be the first to reach the moon and beyond In the 1970s, the two nations began to cooperate in space exploration In 1975, United States and Soviet spacecraft docked, or joined together, in space Later, American and Soviet space missions included scientists from other countries 1950s-70s U.S. & Soviet Union competed to reach moon & beyond 1970s they began to cooperate 1975—U.S. & Soviet spacecraft docked in space Later Am. & Soviet missions included other countries Exploring the Solar System and Beyond

  3. In the late 1990s, the United States, Russia, and 14 other nations began working together to build the International Space Station Some space missions did not include human crew members Unmanned flights sent back pictures and information about other planets In 1990, the United States and European countries sent the Hubble Space Telescope into orbit around the earth. This satellite sent back unprecedented images of objects in space (unprecendented—never done before) Late 1990s, U.S., Russia, 14 other nations began building International Space Station Some space missions—no human crew Unmanned flights sent pics & info about planets 1990 U.S. & European countries sent Hubble Space Telescope into earth’s orbit Sent back unprecedented (never done before) images

  4. Every day satellites are used to track the weather around the world They are also used to search for minerals on the Earth Satellites allow television broadcasts to carry events live around the world Another advance in technology has been the computer Satellites… Track weather Search for minerals Allow live tv broadcasts all over world Another advance--computer Expanding Global Communications

  5. Computers have become more powerful since they were first invented At the same time they have gotten smaller in size Consumer goods such as microwave ovens, telephones, and cars often include computer chips to keep them running Millions of people around the world use personal computers at work or at home Many of these people are connected through the Internet, a worldwide computer network Computers have become more powerful, smaller Consumer goods (ex. microwaves, telephones, cars) often have computer chips Millions of people use computers at work/home Many connected thru Internet

  6. The Internet allows people to get a great deal of information more quickly and easily than ever before The Internet also allows people to communicate with one another Internet allows us to get lots of info quicker/easier than before Allows us to communicate w/ each other
