Summary
Founded by Eisenhower in response to Sputnik and the Soviet space race, DARPA mixes military officers with sneaker-wearing scientists, seeking paradigm-shifting thinking in a wide variety of fields -- from energy, robotics, and rockets, to people-less operating rooms, driverless cars, and planes that can fly halfway around the world in just hours. DARPA gave birth to the Internet, GPS, and mind controlled robotic arms. Its geniuses define future technology for the military and the rest of us. Michael Belfiore was given unprecedented access to write this first ever general account of DARPA. He visited research sites across the country, watching scientists in action, and talking to the creative, fearlessly ambitious visionaries working for and with DARPA. --from publisher description
