One Giant Step Forward in Aerial Photography
During the 20th century, aerial photography graduated from the use of balloons, kites and even pigeons to rockets and satellites. Wars – from World War I through to the Cold War – often drove advancements in technology.
It was the race to the moon, however, that showed men and women around the world the true potential of aerial photography. As Mental Floss tells us, “The Mercury and Apollo space missions took aerial photography to a new level.”
One photograph in particular captured the world’s imagination. It is the famous image of the earth rising above the moon that was taken in 1969 by the astronauts aboard Apollo 10.
According to Time, “The first modern-style drones began to appear in the 1980s, as Israeli engineers developed models equipped with video cameras to monitor persons of interest for hours at a time.” Military usage continued to drive advancements in technology, Time reports, pointing out that, “The use of armed drones is among the most controversial modern military subjects.”
As Time points out, “While the technology has changed dramatically over time, the human desire to see the world from above has been a constant.”
