Advancement of Science in the 21st century

In this 21st century, there are thousands of astonishing scientific breakthroughs that keep us wanting more. Scientists now embark on daring explorations, unraveling the mysteries and technicalities of the universe and her components, experimenting with whatever any and everything. They do this with the intent to end diseases and increase our chances of living more comfortably.

Mind-blowing scientific discoveries abound today, some serving as the key to more significant innovation in the future, and some improving our ways of living. Examples of such scientific discoveries are the detection of gravitational waves, which allows time travel, creation of human body organs such as the brain, heart, and lungs from stem cells, etc. Other examples are advancements in HIV cure, the building of robotic parts, evidence of water on Mars, etc.

In the world today, there are more professionally trained scientists than they had in previous generations combined. Likewise, there are more resources for addressing daunting humanity challenges such as public health, food supply, etcetera, as a result of the decrease in cold-wars, discrimination, and military-industrial complexes. However, at the dawn of this century, science finds itself in a challenging situation. Some of its recent discoveries are considered dangerous to humankind. An example is the invention of hydrogen and atomic bombs, which can lead to mass destruction of mother earth and her habitants.
