its goal. There is one thing I like that came out of the project and that was the networking involved by many agencies and engineering groups working together to develop this large project. In a way it was the birth of the modern Internet and that in itself is a great feat. With that said I think there would have been better ways to accomplish the same results and actually produce an outcome that was desirable.At the beginning of this unit I stated that I think that Universities should be involved in military research. After listening to the lectures and reading the materials and watching the documentaries, my opinion has changed a little bit. I don’t think Universities should really be involved in military research. There is already too many resources put into military research without the help of Universities as it is. The government has put more resources into creating new weapons and technologies than anything else andin my opinion it has not been worth the expense. There could have been so many more things that money could have been put into to better the lives of the American people and the World population. Analternative fuel source is the main thing that comes to mind. It is the biggest issue facing us today and will continue to worsen. The need to shift away from fossil fuels as out main source of energy is essential. Just think of the 30,000+ nuclear warheads that were developed and the cost of each one and the waste of it all when say a dozen or so would be enough to destroy the entire world. It was senseless and a waste. Hopefully we can learn from those mistakes and finally get our money and resources into the things that really matter in this world which are the technologies that help people live (and benefit the ecosystems we live in) rather than those that kill.
