1 The world of science Korbankova Alexandra 8B

2 Science in our life Science? What is science? It is a search for understanding. Science has come to relieve mankind from sufferings, ignorance and to control nature. Sometimes we forget that it does so much for us. But science has changed the world in uncountable way. To make it clear how deeply it is interwoven with our lives, just try imagining a day without scientific progress. Just for starters, without modern science, there would be: no plastic, no electricity, no medicine, no modern communication systems. Nothing. So, you see that science is a good subject to talk about. Lets do it. Science? What is science? It is a search for understanding. Science has come to relieve mankind from sufferings, ignorance and to control nature.

3 The essential problems of science We only think, that modern science knows almost everything. In fact, scientists have answered only a small part of questions. But it is only a matter of time before the unsolvable becomes solved. Many scientists of ancient time thought the Earth was flat with a huge water fall at the end. The solutions of old problems have brought more difficult problems to the modern world and some day our children will solve the problems that we face today. Here are some of them: The problems Ecology Serious diseases Climatic changes UFOs

4 Climatic changes Climatic changes is really the most serious problem of our time. It is one of the most serious scientific, economic threats, facing to the Earth. There are many factors that lead to climate changes: a greenhouse effect, carbon dioxide excess, etc. One of the most serious change nowadays is the Global warming. Unfortunately, all the problems are caused by the human activity. Climatic changes is really the most serious problem of our time.

5 Climatic changes The climate has changed a lot over the past 100 years. But what is going to happen to the climate in the next 10 years? Is it time to buy air conditioners or heaters? Or should we expect that our local climate will change only a bit in the near future? Noone really knows. Most scientists expect, that because of the raising of temperature and the melting of ice the sea level will rise. In the tropics the shortage of rainfall is expected. That will lead to the extinction of many animal and plant species. The climate has changed a lot over the past 100 years. But what is going to happen to the climate in the next 10 years?

That will lead to the extinction of many animal and plant species. But what can we do to prevent this crisis. The best answer is: Think globally and act locally.

6 Stephen Schneider Stephen Henry Schneider, a climatologist, was born in 1945 in New York City and grew up on Long Island. After taking a degree in Mechanical Engineering at Columbia University, he went on to take a doctorate in Mechanical Engineering and Plasma Physics in He wrote articles to scinetific journals. In 1992 he moved to Stanford University, where he held chairs in Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies and Biological Sciences.

7 Stephen Schneider He served as a member of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change from its inception in 1988 until his death. He died in 2010 of a heart attack while flying to London from a science meeting in Stockholm. He succeeded in researching climatic changes and got many awards. The most prestigious was the Nobel prize in international peace.

8 The Nobel Prize and its organizer Alfred Bernhard Nobel, Swedish chemist and inventor, was born in 1833 in Stockholm. After receiving the education in St. Petersburg he worked in his fathers company developing explosives. In 1859 his father went bankrupt and the family returned to Sweden. Nobel invented dynamite in 1867 and a smokeless gunpowder in Though he was a pacifist he was labeled a merchant of death. Perhaps to counter this label he established the Nobel prizes, the most prestigious awards in the world. It is given annually for outstanding achievements in literature, economics, medicine, chemistry, physics, international peace.

9 Our modern life is closely connected with science. Does the science have the future? Of course it has. Science of the XXI century will be fundamentally different from the science of the XX century. There will be other supernatural tasks. This is the theory of risk management, neuroscience, and theoretical history. The future of the science as a social institution depends on the successful solving of these problems. Our modern life is closely connected with science. Does the science have the future?
