Technology
Cold War defense projects spawned a vast array of technological innovations. Some feats of technological progress were clearly aimed at impressing non-aligned states. Others bolstered internal American and Soviet pride. Cold War technological advancements exist in the present in fields such as medicine, space exploration, power generation, and military technology.
