Beginning of WWW 89 TimBerners-Lee CERN.jpg

The origins of the Internet and world wide web access across Planet Earth date back to the development of packet switching and research commissioned by the United States Department of Defense in the 1960s to enable time-sharing of computers. The primary precursor network, the ARPANET, initially served as a backbone for interconnection of regional academic and military networks in the 1970s. The funding of the National Science Foundation Network as a new backbone in the 1980s, as well as private funding for other commercial extensions, led to worldwide participation in the development of new networking technologies, and the merger of many networks. The linking of commercial networks and enterprises by the early 1990s marked the beginning of the transition to the modern Internet, and generated a sustained exponential growth as generations of institutional, personal, and mobile computers were connected to the network. Although the Internet was widely used by academia in the 1980s, commercialization incorporated its services and technologies into virtually every aspect of modern life.

The terms Internet and World Wide Web are often used interchangeably; it is common to speak of "going on the Internet" when using a web browser to view web pages. However, the World Wide Web or the Web is only one of a large number of Internet services, a collection of documents (web pages) and other web resources, linked by hyperlinks and URLs.

SJS/GreenPolicy360 Siterunner: The evolution of Green Strategic Policy can be seen as an 'Overview Effect' ... with science delivering 'from above', a modern environmental movement arose...

the beginnings of a new vision of Earth, Earth Science and Earth Science from Space can be said to have begun with "Earthrise".

Earth comes into view as the Apollo astronauts circle the Moon...

The year was 1968, the month was December.

The three astronauts scrambled for a camera and, with fortune, 'Earthrise' images were captured before Earth quickly passed by their window.

Humanity first envisions Earth from Above

The Apollo 8 astronauts, as they were orbiting around the Moon, were surprised by what they suddenly saw, unexpectedly. Some on Earth began talking about a "Whole Earth" responsibility we felt, and a new strategic vision almost immediately arose.

In January 1969 a full-color majestic picture of our home planet was on the cover of Life Magazine. Our rising home planet surprising and overwhelming us all. Humanities vie of our world began to change...

Later, astronaut pictures, Apollo 17 images looking back at our blue planet, would be called 'Blue Marble' Earth. We shimmered in space, full of potential...

Yet internationally our world was riven with war and conflict. It was a Nuclear era and Nuclear weapons bristled as two nations threatened catastrophe. The Atomic Age with its life ending Atomic Bomb hovered above us all.

The times called for peace, environmental protection, anti-nuke action -- and so we began...

Earth in human hands...

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

-- T. S. Eliot

From our new vantage point, looking back from Earth's moon, humanity's understanding of ourselves and our place as stewards of life on Earth sprung forth. Overnight it seemed many realized we needed to go beyond the peace movement. Soon we began talking and planning for the first Earth Day. The modern environmental movement had work to do and we set ourselves to the task at hand.

New ways of seeing national security began with 'we're all planet citizens'. Above, looking back home, our Blue Planet calls to us to protect and secure life on Earth.
