The Race for Technology

This third book in the Technology Trilogy describes the development of several emerging technologies from 1970 to the start of the 3rd millennium written to explain the human side of science and technology. Against a background of world space exploration, the Cold War, U.S. defense systems, European Space Agency imaging of Halley's Comet, search for the Soviet nuclear explosion at Chernobyl, Russia's crash space programs, and the runaway 1995 Hurricane Season, these three decades kept our nation alerted to communist aggressions. Once again you are there through the author's eyewitness experiences in one adventure after another - from the continued assault on Mars to an in-flight refueling of a B52 bomber and the technology education of gifted young people. While each chapter stands on its own merit, each presents a separate view of the entire picture of the last quarter of the 20th century. If you remember the 20th century, or if you want to gain a glimpse of world events at the end of the century, you will want to read this exciting book.
