Science and technology go hand-in-hand together as they fall closely in the same category. Because of scientific knowledge, technology has been able to grow rapidly to meet the human needs and desires. Technology expands itself each day due to science and allows us to live the comfortable lives that we live. If there were one or the other, the world would not be such a technological advanced place to live. Many people believe if it wasn’t for science and technology, we would still be living life as if it was the Middle Ages.
Technology Enhances Science
One of the main reasons that technology affects science is the way that scientific research is conducted. Many of the ways that technology is developed through scientific findings. Also when the technology is produced, the studies and research of science tend to be much easier. One of the main problems that scientific research deals with is not having enough technological products to meet the needs of science. Some scientific studies are done to further technological needs of man, and vice versa. Many different areas of science such as genetics, space exploration, and nanotechnology are readily available because of the crucial impact that technology has. Many of the modern scientific discoveries would not be possible without the vital role that is technology plays on the development and research of these studies. Mostly all of the different branches of sciences are all dependent on technology advancing at the rapid rate that it has been for the last century.
Science: A Brief History
Science by definition is the understanding of the human body and the rational comprehension of logical order. Technology encompasses all of these traits and has done this since the two have come together. Since the dawn of modern thinking, it has been a quest to enhance the lives around each other and to further the understanding of the world around us. Technology has done this, by allowing humans to improve the scientific standards which make applied science seem much more useful. When science was first taken as a serious study, it was essentially put aside because the technology was not sufficient enough. Many people then turned to developing the technology needed until scientific research could be done. This happened many times until science and technology started to advance at a rapid rate.
Technology does so many wonders and will continue to do so as long as there are new innovative scientific studies to accomplish. Science is very vital to the modern era because of different technological applications being produced from scientific discoveries around the world. Technology has expanded rapidly, and because of this scientific knowledge has been able to flourish in the greatness of technology. Science and technology are equally important in the aspect that bring to our lives around the world.
