Chapter 36Global Interdependence: 1960-Present (51 years ago – Present)

Section 1: The Impact of Science and Technology


Exploring the solar system and beyond

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

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


Expanding global communications

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

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


Chapter 36 global interdependence 1960 present 51 years ago present

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
