Science and Technology are responsible for the healthy and luxurious lives we lead, and so are very important for us. I found many posts interesting last year and wanted to share the best with you. Science and Technology is very broad topic so I broke them into sub categories to make it easier for my readers.
Here are the sub categories:
- Science: Science is the effort to discover, and increase human understanding of how the physical world works. Using controlled methods, scientists collect data in the form of observations, records of observable physical evidence of natural phenomena, and analyze this information to construct theoretical explanations of how things work. Knowledge in science is gained through research. The methods of scientific research include the generation of hypotheses about how natural phenomena work, and experimentation that tests these hypotheses under controlled conditions. The outcome or product of this empirical scientific process is the formulation of theory that describes human understanding of physical processes and facilitates prediction. I had tried to cover 200 best posts of the Science this year.
General Science:There is various categories in the Science and I have considered mainly space, health and environment so, the posts which does not fall in these categories I have collected them in General Science. Here are Blog posts related to the general science this year which I has bookmarked.
