In the last hundred years, modern science has dramatically altered our day-to-day lives. Communications, medicine, travel, medicine, agriculture, entertainment, and mass production were all revolutionized during the 20th century. Advances in the hard sciences, such as physics and chemistry, have also helped us to better understand our world.
The major innovations and discoveries of 20th century science:

1901—Radio: The first radio transmission is successfully received.
1903—Flight: The Wright brothers’ experimental aircraft takes its first successful, manned flight.
1908—Model T: The first Model T automobile is sold. The Model T is considered the first affordable automobile. Costs were lowered through Henry Ford’s use of an assembly line production process, rather than individual craftsmanship.
