There were 3 scientists that were discovering things faster than they could name them so they stop for a while to named them than after they started naming parts of the body. Chapter six “English and Empire” was about how the Britain went on this world to share the language and how they gained more language while touring the world. Chapter seven “The Age of the Dictionary” told the history of the dictionary. It took Dr.Johnson 9 years to put 42 thousand words in his dictionary and years later more and more words were being invented and in 1857 a new dictionary was in the making it took 70 years and 3 people to make it.
The article, “What’s in a Name?” by Adam Hadhazy, argues the pros and the cons about naming things. As far as the article goes, Hadhazy argues, “For others, the designations fail to inspire. Wladimir Lyra, a planetary scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., says the names are boring and don 't resonate with non-scientist audiences” (Hadhazy 3). The interesting way to name the objects of space is constantly not to address thing in one subject, for example, it can be half scientific and mythological roots of the terms in order to create more interesting ideas. Referring to this article, “Can We Know the Universe?”
There has been a lot of technological progression throughout the years. The technological progression during 1900-1959 and 1960-today, which is better?

Self-control is a person’s ability to control their own self. Their emotions, needs, wants, and behavior is just a handful of things that a person can control, but there is always the chance that a want will become a need or a specific emotion becomes how a person behaves.

Would you want the perfect child? The idea of having a parent directed genetically perfect generation is not a new, just look at the 1997 film Gattaca. Only, a superior society is good on paper, but not even close to ethical in real life. The process of genetic selection is a sci-fi fantasy which should not be translated into the real world.

Richard Dawins once wrote, “Nature is not cruel, only pitilessly indifferent. This is one of the hardest lessons for humans to learn. We cannot admit that things might be neither good nor evil, neither cruel nor kind, but simply callous – indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose.” (96) Because the universe is one big cosmic accident, there is no sense in looking for purpose. When milk is spilt on the floor, it doesn’t pour out a certain way on purpose; it’s simply gravity acting on mass because that’s what gravity does and that’s what mass does.
They claimed that they discovered the shape of the double helix. While no one looked into it to see if they actually discovered it. They ended up winning the Nobel peace prize in 1962.

With all of this knowledge in hand they were able to come up with the exact picture of what DNA looked like.
