I think a great portion of these developments and discoveries can be directly related to the technology that came out of WW2. Sonar gave us the mid-Atlantic ridge, thus plate tectonics; radar gave us radio astronomy; the Manhattan Project gave the impetus for nuclear energy technology.

Oh yeah. Wernher von Braun....
