The 10 most important scientific inventions in history
The Science Museum in London conducted a survey of 50,000 people in which they were asked to, of all scientific inventions in history that have been developed throughout history, chose which considered more important.
10,000 people chose the X-ray machine as the most important technological invention, leaving it first. Now step to enunciators Top10 list, but in the end want to see if the view Matt Ridley is met here.
Ridley argues that many of the scientific inventions in history have not been made by scientists but by businessmen or men of business savvy. But now the list (and then the controversy):
1- X-ray machine X-rays story begins with experiments British scientist William Crookes, who investigated in the nineteenth century the effects of certain gases when subjected to power surges. Being close to photographic plates, generated in the same some blurry images. Until November 8, 1895 X-rays were not discovered; by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen physical. For his discovery in 1901 was awarded the first Nobel Prize in physics.
2- Penicillin. Although generally attributed to Alexander Fleming’s discovery of penicillin, many eras and cultures came through observation and experience to know and use the antibacterial properties of molds.
3- DNA double helix. DNA isolated it for the first time during the winter of 1869, the Swiss physician Friedrich Miescher while working at the University of Tubingen. James Watson and Francis Crick proposed in 1953 the model of the DNA double helix to represent the three-dimensional structure of the polymer.
4- Apollo capsule 10. Tenth flight of the Apollo program (officially referred to as AS-505) was launched on May 18, 1969 with Thomas P. Stafford, John Young and Eugene A. Cernan aboard.
5- V2 rocket. This rocket was the first ballistic missile long-range combat world and the first known human artifact that made a suborbital flight. Designed by Wernher von Braun, many of these missiles were fired from the French coast to London in order to cause the greatest possible devastation and undermine the morale of the enemy.
6- Rocket Stephenson. locomotive built by George Stephenson and his son Robert in 1829. She became famous because he won the contest Rain hill and because it had firebox, fire-tube boiler around the home and forced draft, all elements essential building to be retained until the end of the era of steam locomotives.
7- Pilot ACE computer. It was one of the first computers built in the UK, at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in the early 1950s The Pilot ACE ran its first program on 10 May 1950 and was presented to the press in December 1950.
8- Steam engine. There have been many authors have attempted to determine the date of the invention of the steam engine attributing this or that inventor; attempt had been in vain, as the history of its development was plagued with proper names.
9-Ford Model T. Low cost car produced by Ford Motor Company Henry Ford from 1908 to 1927. With the same production chain was introduced, popularizing the purchase of automobiles.
10- Electric telegraph. It was invented by American Samuel Morse in 1832. The first sentence was telegraphed what God hath wrought.
Are inventions come from men of business savvy? For example, the steam engine. In its development they contributed Thomas Newcomen, James Watt, Richard Trevithick and George Stephenson. Three of them were unaware of any scientific theory, and historians disagree on whether the fourth, Watt , was influenced by theory . They were the ones who made it possible theories vacuum and the laws of thermodynamics, not vice versa.http://infohgrafik.com/scientific-inventions-in-history/http://infohgrafik.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/13763952684_09bb354796_b-437x1024.jpghttp://infohgrafik.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/13763952684_09bb354796_b-150x150.jpgScience InfographicsThe Science Museum in London conducted a survey of 50,000 people in which they were asked to, of all scientific inventions in history that have been developed throughout history, chose which considered more important. 10,000 people chose the X-ray machine as the most important technological invention, leaving it first.
