Science is a very important topic because in the modern world with rapid changes and need science can help a lot of things. With the help of technology, science could solve a lot of promblems like cure cancer, solve world hunger. Can you imagine how much we could do if everyone in the world had a chance. Not just the rich country's today.
Whilst I agree, science is important, it is in no way, solving our economical issues, which we're currently up against. Whilst I once again, agree, science is important, it is in no way, preventing world hunger, nor will it ever - it helps us understand the process, and the aftermath. I believe our new technology would be much more efficient, such as drones, etc. While it is a somewhat reliable source, science is not everything. In most cases, it will help people predict some changes in weather, or assist a pharmacologist develop medicine. But, without first-world technology, there's not much available, concerning solutions to pressing issues.
We need to know the problem in order to fix a problem remember. Though science may not be able to fix everything. It can teach us how and what the problem is. For example in Africa there is a bug native to Africa that bites and kills animals. It's been killing a lot of animals in there. If you could find a way to fix this and other reasons why people are struggling to make a living we could fix economic problems. The biggest reason for science and technology is to make people's life easier and more fun.
Without the technology we now possess, it wouldn't be possible. Without the internet, there would be no withdrawals or money deposits. The internet registers all bank money in the system - which is either withdrawn or deposited, but without it, we'd be toast, literally.
Space travel is a huge part of the reason we have some of the things we do today. For example we wouldn't have things like the fire suit. It was made because astronauts need better suits to go in space. According to The Guardian, the satellite Telstar has helped make instant television. It helped people understand what's going on in the real world, plus make watching sports easier. Space travel has made people's lives easier and more fun.
