Ever since the first man grabbed a stone and killed another with it, warfare has been a driver in advancing technology. From explosives to radar to spaceflight, these have all had their roots in war - as do countless other technological advances, though often the connection is unseen.

Space - particularly with regards to spacecraft like the X37-B of Boeing.
