Abstract:

Describes the scientific discoveries and technological innovations made between 1970 and 1990, including deep-sea exploration, automation, and microcomputers. The pace of scientific and technological progress accelerated in the 1970s and 1980s, especially in electronics and computing. Personal computers became small enough and inexpensive enough for widespread home use and a new generation of electronic medical equipment, including MRI and CT scanners, was born. Electronic integrated circuits, or chips, caused a gadget revolution that changed the way the world worked - and played. 20th Century Science and Technology is a decade-by-decade account of scientists and their breakthroughs, inventors and their inventions, that have shaped the modern world. A fact-filled text and both full-color and duotone photographs come together to create an exciting presentation of scientific and technological progress in conjunction with other history-making world events of the time.
