Wonder of Modern Science

Science has changed the face of the world. It
has also revolutionized the life of man. Man
can now live a longer and more comfortable
life because of the progress of science. Man
has conquered Nature with the help of
science.
The wonders of Science have contributed to
the comforts and pleasures of man. Man can
be comfortable anywhere on the surface of
the earth. Air- conditioning can keep him cool
at the Equator. Central heating makes it
possible for him to keep warm at the Poles.
He has become independent of the climate.
Labour- saving gadgets have lightened the
burden of house work for the housewife.
Science has also added to our pleasure. We
can turn on the radio or TV and entertain
ourselves at home. If we wish for outdoor
entertainment we can go and see a film or do
a variety of other things.
Electricity is one of the wonders of Science.
Without it we would not have had electric
lights, fans, refrigerators and all the
labour-saving devices in the home. We also
have wonderful means of travel. Cars and
buses are very common. Electric trains carry
us across the land with great speed. Jet
planes go like a flash across the sky. In no
time, we can be in another continent. Thus
speedy travel is possible only on account of
the wonders of science. Electricity also
enables us to use elevators and escalators
that save us the trouble of going up and
down flights of stairs.
Science has also provided us with spectacles
and contact lenses artificial limbs, fountain
pens, type-writers and mechanical brains or
computers, aren’t all these the wonders of
science ?
It is a wonder that science has conquered
deadly diseases, made man healthier and
lengthened the span of human life. There is
now a cure for practically every fatal
disease that used to take a heavy toll of
human life in the past. Not only this still
more wonderful is the fact that worn out
organs like the human heart and kidneys can
be replaced by transplants.
With the help of science, man has even
reached the moon. Soon he will be visiting
other planets too. There is no limit to the
wonders of science. Scientists are coming
out with new inventions and wonders every
now and then.
The atom bomb and nuclear weapons are also
wonders of science. As these can cause much
destruction, it would be better for men to
make constructive use of the wonders of
science.
