    Default Great inventions and inventors.

    Which invention do you like the most in the history of mankind?
    Who's the greatest inventor/discoverer of all times?


    I want to make a large big up to Tsai Lun, the Chinese guy who invented paper in AD 105.
    Seeking infinity, with all my affinities.
    Finding truth, like a falling fruit, my ultimate finality.
    Inside my being, the outside, all things; the finite leads the way.

    The steam engine. Most notable people involved are Newcomen and Watt, I'd say.

    Peaceful nuclear power is a modern miracle that wouldn't have happened without Enrico Fermi and Igor Kurchatov.

    I'll throw Archimedes in there. That's if he was the one who made the first mechanical computer. Even if not he still created some great stuff.

    The company responsible for creating the internet. (DARPA)

    It has probably surpassed every technological achievement for 50+ years. Not because it has pushed the boundaries of science, but because it has helped educate so many. Not to mention its use for online businesses and social networking.

    In short it has improved the world far more than anything rivalling it, and continues to progress/improve more and more as time passes.
