Boosting scientific understanding, improving communications and bringing about faster transportation transformed the world during the twentieth century more than almost any previous period in history.
During the twentieth century, technology became an ever more important part of everyday life as it revolutionized everything from agriculture to transportation to home entertainment. Among the most notable inventions of the era were the automobile, radio and television, space travel, cell phones and a host of other gadgets, devices and innovations that changed the way we live.
Most technological advancements of the past century were impressive in their own right, but some truly outdid one another. The most impressive was the development of the airplane, or at least a machine that could make it possible for human beings to get from point A to point B in just a few short hours.
It was also the time when the internet was a thing and many people around the world were connected for the first time. The internet is a hugely complex system that connects computers all over the world and has the potential to create a global village.
The best part about it is that it has been proven that there is no limit to the amount of information that can be transferred from one computer to another. This has resulted in the creation of a network that spans continents and even the universe!
In fact, it is thought that the entire network would be able to handle about 20 trillion connections at any given time. The most exciting thing about it is that the information could be used to improve human lives and enhance civilization as a whole.
