Transcript of 05.04 Modern Science

By Douglas Stewart 05.04 Modern Science 1) Penicillin 4) Automobiles Penicillin was invented in 1928 by a man named Alexander Fleming and was used to treat many common deceases. Penicillin is one of few wide spread vaccines that are still used today. Penicillin was also used to help other cures be made. The invention of automobiles was a great invention in the 20th century. The first inventor of the automobile is unknow but it can be dated all the way back to the 1500's when Leonardo da Vinci was inventing different forms of transportation. Automobiles provide a much easier, and faster way to travel around areas much faster and even quickened the speed of connections and trade. Aviation is a major part of our life's today, without flight it would take about two weeks for a cargo ship to cross the pacific, but with cargo planes it can take less than 12 hours. Not only do planes help with cargo and transportation but also with war. Airplanes were first used in war in 1911 but having no weapons installed used handguns and grenades. 3) Aviation The Conclusion Penicillin which is the top of my list because without the little inventions like that many of thousands of people would have died. The cure might of came later on down the road, but if he had not invented it when he did someone like Henry Ford could have died and never created the assembly line or mass production. The microchip is one the main things we use everyday. You may not realize it but every time you use anything from a electric toothbrush to a nuclear missile you are using a microchip. Now I know you might not use a missile in your everyday use but, microchips are required in a lot of things to make them do the things they do. People have wanted to fly since the beginning of time and the first airplane can be dated all the way back to the 1500's with Leonardo da Vinci, however the first known power airplane was invented 1903 when the Wright Brothers took the first flight that lasted four seconds. and in a little over a century we are still using their main design for airplanes. Although the inventor of the automobile is unknown and can also be dated back to Leonardo da Vinci in the 1500's it is the main form of travel today. Everyday most people get in their cars or trucks and go to school, or work, and also go on long vacations with them. Without automobiles we would be using horse and buggies or trains to get around and that could take months to get anywhere. Henry Ford created the modern day assembly line witch shortened production. Before the assembly line it would take days even weeks to finish one automobile, but now they can produce hundreds a day. 2) Microchips Microchips were invented in the 1950's by Jack Kilby and Robert Noyce. Microchips are used in telephones, television, computers, and cameras making them faster, and more mobile.
