Elizabeth Blackwell was born in England on February 3, 1821. She moved to the United States in 1832. They first lived in New York and later went to Ohio. Her family struggled with finances when her father passed away in 1838. Her mother, two sisters, and herself became teachers to make ends meet.
The technology Arthur Holmes used set him apart from other scientists, while still being accurate today. Arthur Holmes used uranium-lead radiometric dating to measure the age of rocks, which in turn, led to his accurate estimation of the Earth’s age, and the popularity of radiometric dating. Holmes’ prediction would have resembled predictions of other scientists of the time if he did not use the then remarkable, new technology of uranium-led radiometric dating. Although Holmes was the first to use uranium-lead radiometric dating, he did not invent it. Ernest Rutherford in 1905 created it, and Arthur Holmes was the first to accurately use it in 1911.
Rosalind Franklin was born on July 25, 1920, in Notting Hill, London, United Kingdom. Raised in a kind and loving family, displayed a broad intelligence throughout her childhood. By the age of 15, she was intrigued with science and knew that she was going to become a well-known scientist. Crazy, right? If I were to ask multiple of my fellow classmates of what they want to be when they’re older, most of the responses would be ‘I haven’t decided yet.’
In 2003, ENCODE was launched to build a complete “parts list” for Homo sapiens by identifying and pinpointing the location of every single stretch of the genome that does somethings. About 99% DNA that did not code for any protein, which called “junk DNA” had become a big challenge for scientists to be recognize instead of about 1% of genome that codes for protein. The establishment of ENCODE exposed previously hidden connections between diseases so that we may able to prevent some particular diseases in the future. ENCODE had also shown that a gene is not the simple stretch of DNA that makes a protein, as we learnt and we knew that not all the protein-coding genes in our cell are activated. Fortunately, after 5 years of hardworking by Encode
The theme of science is illuminated by the notion of electricity and "[its] potential to reanimate corpses" (Brown "The Science"). The theme of religion is connected to religious books, philosophies, and actions. One prominent conflict between the themes revolves around Victor Frankenstein's idea of creating life. Throughout most of his career, Frankenstein was involved with the sciences and gained a great interest in the "human frame" (30) and "the physical secrets of the world" (19). He started an experiment for the sake of science, but saw it as a "[success] in discovering the cause of generation and life" (31).
Roentgen also wrote 58 total papers in his lifetime, some with the help of collaborators and some published in Annalen der Physik und Chemie, which is one of the oldest science journals in physics dating back to 1799. Roentgen 's discovery was crucial during his time period because during World War 1, x-Ray machines were set up and helped with the removal of bullets and shrapnel. His discovery is still important today because we are able to view the insides of the human body without having to cut it open. Today, we use x-rays to locate bone fractures and even for our teeth. The x-Ray has improved over the years because we are able to protect ourselves from the harmful effects that were unknown to the people who lived during Roentgen 's time.
They used a stone blade found in North America, and after radio carbon testing was done on it, they realized it dated back to over 22,000 years ago. They realized there was also a blade similar to the one they had that had been found in western Europe. Many people thought that because two blades so similar were found but in different places, the Land Bridge Theory had to be true. The researchers then put out a statement explaining how far the stone blade dated back and that that would be before theorists said people began to populate the Americas. (natureworldnews.com) ——- At Harvard Medical School they concluded that most modern South Americans carry DNA that shares history with many people native to Australia.
(Kramer 5). There, she discovered her passion for science and shocked her peers by being the only female to attend the science program. (Kramer 5). She had an extremely positive attitude throughout her education which led her to joining the school’s tennis
In other words, she took care of anyone, they were all welcome. “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” Harriet Tubman said. Tubman achieved so much achievements.
Elie Wiesel’s quote in the beginning of the book was basically a short summary for the book’s entire purpose. Especially in light to recognizing how the media and the scientific community viewed Henrietta and her family as abstractions in the world. This is seen especially clear in chapter 7, where George Gey the scientist who had taken Henrietta’s cell without full consent, is featured in the WAAM television in Baltimore for a special segment “…devoted to his work”(Skoot 57). Nowhere in the sentence let alone in the paragraph is there any kind of glimpse towards recognition that Henrietta deserves. That’s an incredibly bold decision, given the fact that the only way you were able to accomplish the chance to give people a hope for a cure to cancer was because someone gave you the key with no explicit consent.
In 1679, Newton 's mother died which caused him to become extremely isolated for six months; he used this time to study gravity. Although Newton is best known for his work on gravity he also had many physical inventions. He is also known for the invention of calculus as well as another mathematician who they say invented it at the same time. Later on, he then published a book titled Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica which is considered to be one of the most influential books in the history of science today. Newton was elected president of Royal Society after the death of Robert Hookes in 170 3.
The Colossus was created to help British codebreakers decode encrypted German messages, during World War II. The ABC (John Atanasoff Computer), the world 's first electronic digital computer, was built by John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry in 1942 at Iowa State University. The computer was designed to generally to solve linear equations. But, the 18,000 vacuum tube powered computer also solved the U.S. Army 's problem of computing artillery and bombing tables.

Rosalind worked in London in the 1940’s during WWII. She worked with x-ray diffraction with DNA fibers as stated, and helped with genetic instructions to make a picture with deoxyribonucleic acid. For all of her work creating the first x-ray picture, she should’ve won the Nobel Prize. Sadly her death interrupted the acceptance and other scientists took the credit for the award. Rosalind Franklin’s contributions to the area of chemistry have greatly affected our world today.
