Spinning of yarn, weaving of cloth and sewing of clothes can be done at great speed by using the invention of science. Food-processing, house-building, constructing roads and bridges can be done very quickly. Millions of pages can be printed or reproduced in a short time. A calculator can solve any difficult mathematical problem in no time. 

The invention of science is of great use in the field of medical science that it has discovered the causes of most of the diseases and their remedies. A deadly disease like TB and cancer has been conquered. Cholera has also been brought under control. Smallpox has been eliminated. The X-ray and other diagnostic instruments are also mentionable. 

Science has increased food production greatly. If we can apply the scientific methods properly, there will be no hunger in the world. Tractors, power-pumps, fertilizers, high-yielding varieties of crops and irrigation techniques have revolutionized agriculture.

In industrial areas, science is the only contributor. All the industries run with the knowledge and help of science. From the needles to rockets, everything produced in industry is the contribution of science.

We see the influence of science at every step of our life. It has changed the mode of life. It has created many things for our comfort. Science today has taken possession of the world.
