Michael Crichton is of course famous for authoring a book that correctly predicted the Jurassic Park disaster before it happened and long before they made a movie about it. While the scientists were busy in their labs playing with dinosaur jeans, a science author who understood science better than any scientist ever could predicted the theory that life always finds a way and that velociraptors would learn how to use door handles. Scientific research and technological development are radically transforming basic philosophical ideas about the nature of the physical world, time and space, the nature of life and intelligence, and the limits in our abilities to transform the world and humanity.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Airports Authority of India (AAI), aimed at providing space technology for construction of airports, which will help make flight operations safer and provide optimum utilisation of land.
Many cities, including Kaminaljuyu, had sophisticated waterways, making use of hydraulic technology to successfully supply water throughout the sprawling communities. Established in 1981 EASST is the organization which represents academics and researchers in the broad field of science, technology and innovation studies. Technology , the collection of techniques, methods or processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation, or any other consumer demands. Through its teaching as well as its research, the department is playing a notable role in building the emerging discipline of Science & Technology Studies (STS).
In his chapter Beyond the Digital: Preparing Artists to Work at the Frontiers of Technoculture,” Stephen Wilson proposes that although the impact of digital technology is significant, it forms part of something much more momentous that is intertwined with the aesthetic, ethical, cultural, and social-economic.
