Science has helped in all fields of life.Technology,education,medicine,communication.

Basic life would be impossible without the contributions that science has made.T

Cars,new medicines and cures,mobiles...and in a more complex level understanding the human organism,solving mysteries of our past,preparing for the future and learning about the universe.Living in a world without the contribution of science would be like returning to the Stone ages where humans survived on nothing but instinct and raw need for survival.Maybe not completely but science is a boon..

Despite the dazzling successes of modern technology and the unprecedented power of modern military systems, they suffer from a common and catastrophic fault. While providing us with a bountiful supply of food, with great industrial plants, with high-speed transportation, and with military weapons of unprecedented power, they threaten our very survival.
