Summary
"So many of the things we now take for granted, including television, radio, radar, and computers, owe their origins to great periods of technological innovation that took place around the two world wars of the 20th century. This included the development of the helicopter, the jet engine, the antibiotic penicillin, and the nuclear bomb. The new science of molecular biology was also born, its most famous advance being the discovery of the double helix structure of the DNA molecule." --From the publisher
