Readers American online newspaper "The Huffington Post" recently in the online poll agreed that it was this same web of all the technological advances in the past century has brought the biggest changes in their lives. The second biggest innovation, which has enabled the first and, for them, is a transistor. In third place were commercial flights, TV on the fourth, and only after that - the genetic map of the human body. Birth control pills, pen and SAT are still found in front of so many used mobile phones by just over two percent of voters ranked the highest among the findings of the century.

Recollection of the technological advances of the last century, you might get a different order in some other parts of the world, but the majority of mankind would certainly agreed that it is difficult to imagine a time when not on the "Google" find the answers to your questions, hung over "Face" or mobile perpetuate important moments. Even those aging who remember the time without any of the ordinary household appliances today can hardly imagine life without vacuum cleaners, washing machines, refrigerators, even without the remote control, and microwave ovens are following us since the fifties ... The more technological innovation accelerated in recent decades it seems to be less and less willing to give up either of them.

Another question is how technological breakthroughs affect on humanity. Only if you look at the last decade, there has been that much innovation that improve people's lives, as did the more confused everyday life - communicating, relationships and thinking of modern man.

Scientists have discovered a planet outside our solar system, astronomers can identify out-solar planets by measuring gravitational effect on the stars, but the origin of the earth they are reduced to a range of theories.
Michael Brunet found the oldest human fossil in the African country of Chad. Fragments of six to seven million years old skull suggests the length of human evolution. The discovery that man has approximately 20,000 to 25,000 genes yielded a picture of genetic maps, throwing new light on diseases, new sources of energy, and many other scientific fields. Ian Vilmut added to his name the title "Sir" when he cloned the first human, sheep Dolly. The secret of life, however, is still not detected.
January 2001. it launched the first Internet encyclopedia "Wikipedia", and Larry Page and Sergey Brin are the invention of "Google" which is from 2004. became available to everyone, made a revolution in access to information.

Percentage of people with access to safe water has almost doubled over the past decade, GDP per capita rose. The development of computers has enabled
spectacular progress in many aspects of society. The development of genetic engineering and biotechnology is the most revolutionary achievements of recent decades.
At the same time, science and ethics are connected more than ever before, opening questions the essence of life and existence, the impact of technological development in general satisfaction and well-being, or how "reduced" the world makes connections and humanity, and the world more peaceful and safer place to live. Most of the questions remain unanswered, some, such as the possibility of using nuclear weapons, create a feeling of unease.
