The earliest ancestor of the modern automobile is probably the Fardier, a three-wheeled, steam-powered, 2.3-mph vehicle built in 1771 by Nicolas Joseph Cugnot for the French minister of war.  This cumbersome machine was never put into production because it was much slower and harder to operate than a horse-drawn vehicle.

Printing Press

In 1440, German inventor Johannes Gutenberg invented a printing press process that, with refinements and increased mechanization, remained the principal means of printing until the late 20th century. The inventor's method of printing from movable type, including the use of metal molds and alloys, a special press, and oil-based inks, allowed for the first time the mass production of printed books.

Some of my favorite art comes directly from science. I’m especially fond of microscopes – both as a tool, and as industrial design. They uncover tiny worlds that move largely unseen and were undiscovered until the invention of this device. We can thank Robert Hooke for the Microscope, and for uncovering that tiny world.

  • There is not just one inventor of the computer, as the ideas of many scientists and engineers led to its invention. These ideas were developed in the 1930s and 1940s, mostly independently of each other, in Germany, Great Britain and the USA, and were turned into working machines.

Penicillin is a group of antibiotics. Penicillin antibiotics are the first drugs that were effective against many previously serious diseases. Penicillin is still widely used today, though many types of bacteria are now resistant. The discovery of penicillin is attributed to Scottish scientist and Nobel laureate Alexander Fleming in 1928.
