Introduction: we live in an age of science. Our life today is governed and conditioned by the wonderful offshoots of science. We feel the impact of science almost in everyday walk of our life.
- Wonders of Modern Science
- Science and Modern Civilization
- Uses and Abuses of Modern Science
Features of science: science is the gospel of modern civilization. It has made the impossible possible. It has brought about a radical change over the global of the world. Science does today what was supposed to the impossible yesterday.
Science and electricity: electricity is the first wonder of modern science. It has brought about a great change in our life. Modern civilization it self is indeed the creation of electricity. Modern civilization would come to a standstill if there were no electricity. It is a great source of power and energy. It has made our life easy. Comfortable and enjoyable.
Science and communication: science has done a great magic in the field of communication. Telephone one. Fax, telex, wireless, mobile phone, internet etc. Are all great wonders of science, they have conquered time, space and distance and brought the world closer to us. Radio and television are also two great wonders of communication.
Science and medical world: science has also done miracles in the medical world. It have enabled men to fight doses effectively. Robot, these tube child, heart- transplantation, eye-grafting etc. Are all the dramatic contributions of science. We can mention the names of penicillin, x-rays, ECG, biopsy, ultra-sonography. Radiotherapy etc. As the fighting weapons of science against diseases.
Science and agriculture: science has contributed a lot in the field of agriculture. Different tools used in modern cultivation are the products of science. Our scientists have invented a great variety of high yielding kinds of paddy to boost up our agriculture and attain self-sufficiently in food production. Science has also brought about a great revolution in the field of industrialization.
Science and recreation: science has also invented many wonders for our recreation. We have cinema, radio, television, tape recorder, V.C.R, S.T.R etc. For our recreation, these media help us enjoy ourselves and forget our pains, sorrows and boredom of our day-to day Routine-bound hard-felt life.
Science and transport: science has also modernized our transport system. We can now travels thousands of miles within a shout time by car, trains, buses, launches and steamers. These transports have brought the world closer to us. This is why transport is rightly said to be civilization. The more a nation developed in its transport system, the more it is said to be civilized.
Science and radar: the invention of radar is another wonder of science. It helps us detect the advancement of ships, planes and the like. Meteorologists can also forecast weather with the help of radar. The invention of rocket has made space travel easy. Man has successfully landed on the moon with the helps of rocket. We can assert that the landing on the moon is giant step in the history of mankind.
Science and computer: the latest miracle of science Is computer. It is like a super electric brain. It can do all types of difficult calculation, keeping records and information. It is able to work very wonderfully and effectively. Whatever record and information we keep stored in its memory, we can retrieve and recover, as and when we need, by pressing on buttons.
Science and nuclear energy: nuclear energy is perhaps the most wonderful of all achievements of modern science. It has made the making of destructive weapons like atom bomb, hydrogen bomb and missiles possible. Scientists, however, have been trying their best utilize nuclear energy for the benefit of mankind.
Conclusion: modern science is like Aladdin’s magic lamp. We now live scientifically; move scientifically, think scientifically and feel scientifically. We need science more then ever before indeed.
