In the military sphere, airpower--anything guidable that moves through the air or space, manned or remotely piloted--has encountered the same problem, as evidenced by Marshal Ferdinand Foch's reported evaluation of the airplane when he was a professor of strategy at France's Ecole superieure de guerre (war college) before World War I: "Airplanes are interesting toys, but of no military value.
Hence I believe that somewhere a guidable aircraft will be discovered" (quoted in Laqueur 102).
