    In the future, our rocket cars with have satellite-receiving navigation systems to guide us. Those navigation systems will be tiny (about the size of a portable TV), and in order to program a route, you will simply show the unit where you want to go.

    science and technology….we want to beat everbody and be the smartest nation, the most advanced nation etc.! We were in the beginnings of a “Cold War” with Russia and a race to be the first across the “techno” finish line. The United States wanted to pull away from an agricultural based society to that of a technology based society…unfortunately you can’t eat a micro chip.
