Chapter 33:
Wartime Incentive
Abstract
Although one cannot advocate wars to further the advance of science, there can be gains realized during the pressures of hostilities that are beneficial to mankind. The development of infrared sensitive detectors during World War II is a case in point. Research on photosensitive cells which was conducted by the adversaries enabled scientists in the succeeding peace to undertake investigations that have advanced astronomy, geology, medicine, agriculture, meteorology, and other scientific disciplines.
