After the launch of Sputnik in 1957 by the Russians, the US was determined to never be behind in technology again. DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency was founded immediately and it’s been creating the future ever sense. This little thing called the Internet, you can thank DARPA for that.

Today they work on the most outlandishly advanced projects like hypersonic space planes, pathogens to fight biological weapons, robotic pack animals and devices to instantly translate language between speaker and listener.

How do they do it? Besides hiring the smartest people in the world, they have a the best mission statement ever, “From the impossible, to the improbable, to the inevitable.”

That’s a bold statement. It means they actively pursue projects that require advanced research, go through a demanding trial and error process to one day reaching a goal so far fetched that we sit in slack-jaw amazement of what has been created.

From the impossible, to the improbable, to the inevitable. You should try it for yourself.
