The Origins and Consequences of GPS Technology
It began with military needs and opportunities and it has gone on to change the very texture of our lives. Just think: “Smart Phone!” How everything on earth came to be viewable from space (whether your vehicle traversing a city neighborhood or a moving squad of Al Qaeda about to be “droned”) is due to the pervasive new technology, still expanding, of Global Positioning Systems. We speak with Richard Easton, author of a fine new book about the history of GPS technology who is also the son of the man, Roger Easton, who gets the deserved lion’s share of the credit.
