The history of science and technology (HST) is a field of history which examines how understanding of the natural world (science) and ability to manipulate it (technology) have changed over the centuries

The history of science and technology (HST) is a field of history which examines how understanding of the natural world (science) and ability to manipulate it (technology) have changed over the centuries. This academic discipline also studies the cultural, economic, and political impacts of scientific innovation. Histories of science were originally written by practicing and retired scientists, starting primarily with William Whewell, as a way to communicate the virtues of science to the public

Technology from 1900 to 1945. Recent history is notoriously difficult to write, because of the mass of material and the problem of distinguishing the significant from the insignificant among events that have virtually the power of contemporary experience

Technology from 1900 to 1945. Recent history is notoriously difficult to write, because of the mass of material and the problem of distinguishing the significant from the insignificant among events that have virtually the power of contemporary experience. In respect to the recent history of technology, however, one fact stands out clearly: despite the immense achievements of technology by 1900, the following decades witnessed more advance over a wide range of activities than the whole of previously recorded history.

The 17th century saw the rise of those we now call scientists

The 17th century saw the rise of those we now call scientists. They called themselves natural philosophers. Technology often preceded science-things were often invented that worked before a scientist could explain why they worked. Inventions, like literature and fine art, often appear and only later can people explain what they mean and how they work. Palladio had invented the truss in the 16th century, which proved to be of enormous consequence to the architecture, buildings, bridges, and canals of the 17th century. In the 17th century, we see the invention of the telescope and microscope, as well as far superior clocks, and the liquid compass.

Modern science: What's changing? When Gregor Mendel began his investigations of plant genetics in the 1800s, he worked alone - a middle-aged European monk counting peas in the abbey garden. One hundred and fifty years later, modern plant genetics laboratories, like Chelsea Specht's below, look a lot more diverse and employ the latest DNA sequencing techniques. This swift distribution of information can speed the pace of science since the latest studies can be scrutinized, replicated, and/or built upon with very little lag time.

UNIT 3. Lesson 1. Science and computer technologies. Computer technology plays the most important role in the progress of science. The ability of computers to solve many mathematical problems more effectively than man does, has given rise to new trends in mathematics. I. Read and memorize the following words and word combinations: rate – темп, скорость well-being – благосостояние field – область. In recent years scientists of the world have achieved great success in the development of physics, chemistry, biology, and such astonishing, interesting science as psychology.
