One of the most often asked questions in the contemporary world is ‘What is the meaning of science and technology?’ Man is innovative in nature. In fact, technology has evolved to serve not just human beings but also other members of the animal species as well. India has a long and distinguished tradition in science and technology, from the ancient times to great achievements during this century; the latter half prior to independence has been related largely to pure research. It is believed that new medical science and technology will be able to cure cancer, HIV-AIDS and even the common cold! Technology refers the knowledge and utilization of tools, techniques and systems in order to serve a bigger purpose like solving problems or making life easier and better.
New science and technology may also one day lead to mainstream alternative fuel vehicles, space travel for civilians, virtual reality conferences, a worldwide network of personal wireless electronics, data-transmission at the speed of thought, reversal of global warming and too many other innovations to mention. Its influence on society can also be seen in how people use technology and its ethical significance in the society. It is the science and technology which has helped India to get its real recognition all over the world.
Modern scientists though have tested the success of space technology in the form of spacecraft, space mission i.e. moon mission, mars mission and many other things but the scientists are still on job for finding many unknown things about universe and like earth any other planet or stars have living being possibility or not. With Applied Science & Technology Source, users have access to a robust full-text companion to Inspec, an index to thousands of science and technology journals. The implication of science and technology to the people’s life is very old from the time of Indus Valley Civilization.
Scientists at the Carnegie Mellon University, USA, have developed a new technology that can enable users to turn any surface into a touch screen with just a wave of the hand. New fields such as information technology and genetic engineering force courts to decide how to apply laws made before such technologies were contemplated. The tradition of spiritual experimentation in India, however, is compatible with the material and intellectual experimentation required by science.
Applied Science & Technology Source was developed though a merger of high-quality databases from EBSCO and H.W. Wilson and includes many unique full-text journals not previously available in any other database. Faculty members have been elected to membership of the US National Academy of Engineering, US National Academy of Arts and Sciences, European Academy of Arts and Sciences, Royal Society of Chemistry, among other eminent international academic institutions.
