Experts versed in the history of the period contributed professionally to the main events of 1991.The internet was a solution found to provide an alternative communication channel, first thought about in the cold war era. After the Soviets had launched the Sputnik into space, the Americans saw it as a threat and considered what would happen if the Soviets launched a missile to cripple communication largely dependent on telephone lines for long distance communication. In 1962, M.I.T and Apra scientist J. C. R. Licklider proposed a kind of galactic network that did not rely on phone lines.
