The most important technological achievement is without a doubt the invention of the Sputnik rocket and the space race between the USSR and the United States of America (USA). While modern history was shaped by the invention of the printing press and many would argue that machine is the most important, I would disagree. We put a man on the moon. That very idea in the rest of human history was only dreamed of, the invention of the Sputnik started a space race which led to advances in science. These scientific advances led to new and ever-expanding technology which will progress us into the future. It can be argued that Earth will always be our home, but the future of humanity lies in the stars and this is a fact that humans cannot deny. . Dickson declared that, “ Without Sputnik, it is all but certain that there would not have been a race to the moon.” (Dickson 1).
