Also, 1969 was a creative year when J.E. Lovelock came up with the awareness that Earth is the biggest organism in the system, what is named GAIA hypothesis. The hypothesis stated that the biosphere has a self-regulating function with the ability to maintain our planet’s health by controlling the chemical, physical, and biochemical environment. Because the most advanced science and technology of the Apollo mission at that time had developed consciously and rationally, we gathered and concentrated on seeing Earth as a whole from a bird’s-eye view. This guided to the organization of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and the participation of many scientists in climate change research. The advanced science and technology developed to the topic of receiving the Nobel Prize.
