I recently wen to a lecture on coding theory, where they told a very interesting story, which I will relay to you after school, so about five hours.

Hadamard discovered Hadamard matrices in the 1800’s for purely theoretical reasons. When NASA sent robots to Mars, they used Hadamard matrices for error-checking on pictures sent from Mars.
