Some more important than others, yet every accomplishment is amazing to the person who took part in the accomplishment. One might find it difficult to put together a list of their top seven most magnificent engineering achievements due to the fact that their cannot be one defined list. One accomplishment may mean more to one person than it does to another. Using that judgement, I have came up with my own seven magnificent engineering accomplishments in the world, in order of how magnificent I find them, going from seven to one(best). The lightbulb, they are everywhere in our world, cheap, efficient and brighten …show more content…
Which dates all the way back to 1192 in China. A firearm or gun, consists of an explosion cause by gun powder being ignited which propels a projectile down a barrel and through the air at a great speed.
