Science has revolutionized our world with unimaginable advancements in technology. From the brilliant minds of William Whewell (who coined the English word “science”) to the modern day scientist like Stephen William Hawking (who contributed to the vast amount of today’s knowledge on cosmology and quantum gravity). Furthermore, science has become so advanced in this day-in-age that it has been split apart into different sections that each cover a broad range of technological information, research, and experiments. Since the topic of science is so broad, we will just discuss different types of science and how they apply to our current modern day life. To commence this composition, let’s discuss about astronomy and how critically beneficial it has contributed to our knowledge as of today. According to history, astronomy is one of the oldest sciences ever studied. Studies predate back in time of the Mayans, Greeks, Babylonians, Indian Egyptians, and Chinese. Those …show more content…
There are many sub-groups that are studied in this field. Physiology, which is the study of how the body and parts of the body (organs, bone structures, etc.) all function independently as well as a whole. Histology and Cytology are two other important fields of study in Anatomy; which primarily focuses on how cells and tissues function, adapt, evolve, and react at the microscopic level. Personally, my favorite field of study in Anatomy would be Neurophysiology. Neurophysiology studies the nervous system and is (in my personal opinion) the most difficult field of study. The human brain is one of the most interesting organs on the planet, and has yet to be fully interpreted by neuro scientists. Famous scientist from the past like Vesalius (1514-1564), René Descartes (1596-1650) and Thomas Willis (1621-1675) provided many discoverable contributions to this particular field of study in
