List of Important scientists and their Inventions: Science is an important part of our everyday life, even more than we can notice. From our small mobile gadgets to heavy machines we see around us, from the light bulbs to space explorations, it is all a gift of science and technology. This all technology was not discovered in a single day, It took more than a decade or even more than a century to discover this. I wonder how difficult our life would have been if none of these things was invented

Given below is a list of various Inventions and discoveries along with the name of the Inventor and the year in which it was invented:
