Wonders of Modern Science
Science means knowledge gained through experiments and research. Science does many things for the development of human civilization. The modern age is a gift of science. Science has a kind of magic in it. It can do anything.
Our agricultural and industrial development is fully dependent on modern science. We now cultivate our land with power tillers. The production of crops is increasing day by day with the help of chemical fertilizers and insecticides. Science also helps us in inventing new hybrid seeds. In industrial areas, science is the only contributor. All industries run with knowledge and the help of science. From needles to rockets, everything produced in the industry is the contribution of science.
We see the influence of science at every step of our life. It has changed the mode of life. It has created many things for our comfort. Science today has taken possession of the world. The pen we write with, the shirt we put on, and the bicycle we ride ¾ all are the products of science. Electricity has worked wonders. With the touch of a switch, we get our lights dazzling, fans whirling and radios and televisions singing and talking. The gifts of science are always seen everywhere.
Telephone, mobile phone, fax, telegram etc. are great wonders of science. We can instantly communicate with our desired person or persons through them. Radio and television are also great media for communication and recreation.
Cinema, tape recorders, CDs, VCD and DVD players, satellite TV etc. are some remarkable gifts of science for our recreation.
Science has done a lot in diagnosing and treating patients. X-rays, CT scans, ultrasonography, ECG, biopsy, various life-saving antibiotics etc. are the wonderful gifts of science. Modern medical science has given eyes to the blind, hearing to the deaf, legs to the lame and whatnot.
Science has made the world smaller and faster. Buses, trains, aero planes etc. can take us from one place to another within a short time. Computers and the internet are the greatest wonders of modern science. They are doing various difficult tasks for us within a very short time.
Sometimes, science becomes a curse. Science is for the benefit of mankind but out of selfish motives, man misuses science and brings untold suffering. Some scientists have invented some dreadful weapons. Tanks, missiles, torpedoes, atoms and hydrogen bombs can easily destroy the world in a moment.
The invention of science is to do good to human beings. Science brings happiness and prosperity. But if it is misused, it may bring destruction.
