Synopsis

Here, from New York Times and National Geographic contributor Jim Carrier, is the fascinating, little-known story of the discovery, development, and future of GPS, the greatest advance in navigation ever fielded and a mighty electronic glue binding the modern world together. I believe that 50 years from now historians will place GPS on the short list of inventions, alongside the clock, electricity, and the Internet, that are truly indispensable, he writes. We cant imagine living without it. In fact, without GPS, civilization as we have come to expect it would sink into chaos.
