Science and technology have a vital role to play in modern society. Science allows us to understand the world we live in and the universe that surrounds us at a deeper level, whereas technology improves our standard of living and opens up new opportunities for exploration and communication that we can take full advantage of.

Science in particular has helped us to improve our understanding of life and how it works. Biology, chemistry and physics are the three major branches of scientific research which allow us to understand the Earth's creatures, competition for life, the composition of various materials, and the laws of gravity and other forces. Aside from this, there are also the social sciences which enable us to understand human relationships and interactions through studies of the brain and cognitive processes. Some of the main branches in the social science field include the likes of psychology, economics, government, business, archeology and criminology.

Technology, on the other hand, continues to develop at a rapid rate as the world's population expands and connects like never before. Communication and interactions between people all over the world has improved as a result of advancements in technology, with mobile phone and emails allowing people from one hemisphere to communicate with individuals thousands of miles away on the other side of the globe. There have even been technological developments to improve our interactions outside of Earth in our wider solar system. Satellites and rockets have been developed, with the first lunar landing in history happening when Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins touched down on the surface of the moon - an historic event that shaped society's future in terms of scientific and technical developments.

Science and technology can come together to help improve our society - as can be seen with the creation of new medicines and machines as a result of technical developments based on scientific research. When the powers that science and technology gift us with are abused, however, the consequences can be very severe - and not always in a good way.
