What are the most important achievements in science?

Wow, an ambitious task:


  • Archimedes' principle-- buoyant force = weight of the fluid it displaces
  • Galileo -- (1) telescope for astrophysics; (2) prove that gravitational acceleration is not dependent on weight
  • Newton -- (1) three laws of motion; (2) laws of gravitation
  • Kepler -- three laws of planetary motion
  • Copernicus -- heliocentrism - the idea that sun is the centre of the solar system
  • Bernoulli's principle -- an equation that governs aerodynamics
  • Einstein -- special and general relativity


  • Mendeleev -- the creator of modern periodic table
  • Curie -- discovery of radium
  • Arrhenius -- the theory of greenhouse effect
  • Haber -- do you remember the Haber process? Ammonia gas is produced using suitable catalysts from nitrogen and hydrogen
  • Pauling -- do you remember the Pauling scale? The scale for different elements regarding their electronegativity


  • Watson and Crick -- description of the DNA model
  • Leeuwenhoek -- improving the microscope
  • Darwin -- theory of evolution
  • Hooke -- discovery of cell
  • Wilmut and Campbell -- cloning of sheep (DOLLY!)

There are also numerous other achievements but I think these are the main ones.

Could we (humans) ever reproduce with a monkey?

Humans and gorillas were apparently still mating up until 1,000,000 years ago. When we diverged, we modified our chromosome structure as well. Humans now have 46 chromosomes, apes 48. So theoretically we are no longer compatible. Its not a complete barrier however, as other closely related species have

Can we (humans) destroy the sun?

Think about it: the sun has a mass of one million Earth size planets and releases trillions of watts of energy every second. It is one gigantic hydrogen fusion bomb going off every second for the last 5 billion years. If the Sun has lasted that long
