There have been many incredible thinkers, inventors, and people whose way of thinking have forged new paths to shape the way we live today. Nicola Tesla and Thomas Edison are two of these forward-thinking minds responsible numerous for technological leaps. Tesla suffering from mental illness, the struggles of financial difficulty, and the competition of other inventors never let his passion for inventing dwindle. Edison was a business mogul, with very little education and a legacy of life changing technological contributions. These factors make Nicola tesla and Thomas Edison the models in which all inventors should strive to achieve.
Howbeit, in light of the later sinking of Endurance, Shackleton and his crew had experienced one of the most incredible feats of survival ever recorded. (123) So was the expedition a failure or a success? Evidently, not one occurrence was planned beforehand, and transpired rather abruptly. In March, the crew of Endurance “watched as one large [iceberg] began
His personal reputation and high ranking position attributed to his decision to support scientific work. But men like, Thomas Hobbes, caught on to the fake support and openly criticized these political leaders. Hobbes claimed that people supported geometry because it didn't jeopardize their political position, but when scientific discoveries threatened religious beliefs, everyone criticized it (Doc 7). Whether supporting science for personal advancement, political advancement, or just in the belief of its legitimacy helped advance the work of scientists with their
They hired over 130,000 people in total to begin their ultimate plan, which of course was to create the world’s first atomic bomb. Wonderful scientists came from all over the globe, including a the famous physicist known as James Chadwick of the United Kingdom, who was known for winning the Nobel prize in 1932 for discovering the neutron. To the workers on the project, it was less of their own research for the USA’s better knowledge, but more of research and experiments being conducted as to race against Germany. And in all fairness, that is exactly what it was. The fight for the bomb, you could say.
As well as writing the Declaration of Independence and serving as our president of the U.S., Thomas Jefferson invented and improved many things that we now use that will help us and advance technology we have today. Many of Jefferson’s inventions are hard to determine whether he was the first one to invent it or not because he never patented his work. One of his inventions is a mechanical pedometer. A pedometer is a tracker used to count your steps in order to promote and motivate you to exercise more. Some people refer to them as “Tomish Meters.” Today, pedometers are not used often, but will most likely become more popular in the future.
While he made inventions and help America in World War II, he had a turning point in his career. In 1905, Albert Einstein's “miracle year” was the year that stood out in science forever. During this year, Albert Einstein made four theories that will never be forgotten. The first theory he made “showed that light could be created as particles as well as waves.” In the second theory, he proved the existence of atoms and molecules. The third theory, which is a special theory of relativity, said that there was no such thing as absolute space and time.
PREPARATION My biology hero, Joseph Priestley, really impacted the world. He impacted the world by discovering oxygen, inventing sparkling water, and helping his colleagues contribute to electricity. Many people do not appreciate and recognize him as much as Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, etc. Joseph Priestley showed his intelligence as an child by studying math, logic, metaphysics, and philosophy. He also fluently spoke six languages.
billionaires, and not even geniuses - ever makes it alone,(P.115)". One can conclude from this that the support - system is the determiner whether or not you can be successful. Malcolm Gladwell writes about a man named Robert Oppenheimer and how he became successful through knowledge, hard work, and support. He was a physicist and became famous through his efforts during World War 2 where he tried to create the nuclear bomb. Though this is appreciated as ”scratching the surface of Oppenheimer 's” life.
Odyssey Project Odysseus’ journey had many hardships and trials. Although Odysseus made it home, none of his men survived. If he had had many of the inventions and technological devices that we have in modern days, then his adventure trying to get home would have been much more successful. Some gadgets that could have help him and his crew would be guns, GPS, Sonar/Radar, and an X-ray machine. Guns would have been extremely helpful on Odysseus’ voyage.
As we all know, the way to success is full of obstacles and difficulties, and you need to try your best to handle these problems and persist achieving final goals. There are many examples such as Thomas Edison, one of the greatest scientists in the world, spent several decades inventing the battery. Though he failed so many times, he never gave up but persisted testing for thousands of times, and finally he succeeded in inventing the battery. However, if he gave up when he faced problems, we cannot enjoy the benefits of the battery as so early. What makes him a giant in the invention field is that his
