Re: Historically, the cross over from space exploration

Fairchild and the birth of Silicon Valley are intertwined with space [at one point they WERE on the cutting edge of lightweight electronics, the digital B/W motion picture camera on the Moon is another example] but not necessarily peaceful uses of space (see Fairchild Wiki page and the Minuteman Ballistic Missile). Admittedly, this does not hold now, other markets drive development.
