The Mysteries of Science
As I write this essay, I am over whelmed by what human beings can accomplish given time and space. As I look through my window, planes are flying over smoke that lazily ascends from the industries beneath them; vehicles fill every available space along the streets as the news report another successful rocket launch on its mission to the Mars. If only the views of the unborn mind could be trusted, I would have been born centuries earlier. In the current world that is driven by fear over global climate changes, global warming, global economic recession, global terrorism amidst a host of many other global concerns, I may not help but burry my head in the peaceful moments only experienced by the

With the current mistrust among the powerful nations and the growing network of the terrorism movement, science research is mainly focused on war related equipment. The barometers to measure the nation’s power are no longer based on its ability to feed their people but on the precision of the fighting arsenals in its possession. Science and technology has made it possible to have every square meter of the vast globe being monitored by fire spitting satellites waiting for any possible provocation. Space dominance and nuclear science has lately become a factor that fuels a renewed arms race with every nation claiming to be innocent and blaming the neighbor for being aggressive and provocative. North Korea for example, has continuously blamed Israel and USA for developing nuclear weapons while denying them a chance to do the same. This single case has raised tempers among the North Korea allies who are always threatening to cause havoc if North Korea is not allowed to use nuclear in its scientific development projects (McNamara 19). The horrible experience on September 11th was a chilling reminder on what our highly valuable scientific innovations can feed us on, even in the unexpected time when we are experiencing peace.
The emerging nuclear stations pose a great risk to human race, given that even at the most peaceful time, accidents can cause untold catastrophes that can be experienced across many generations. Disposal of industrial wastes, that is
