14 Amazing Facts About Technology

This article will cover fourteen different facts about the great technology we use every day. Of course, many of these facts are well-known and are mentioned in every single history guide you read or show on TV. But there are a few scientific and technical achievements that are amazing for all the world to see! 

Here is our list of 14 amazing facts about technology!

  1. All modern computers contain around 17 billion transistors!
  2. A human brain can comprehend roughly 10 billion bits at any given time – that’s 70% more than the most advanced computer’s processing power (10 trillion)!
  3. It takes 3 minutes to download 1 terabit data… (1,000,000,000,000,000 kilobits per second)!
  4. The previous record for the fastest internet download speed was clocked at a speed of 126.2 megabits per second (Mbps) by scientists at the European Research Center for Optical Technologies in Naples in November 2014.
  5. At the moment, humans have downloaded 40 petabytes (40 million gigabytes) of data from the internet!
  6. Some physicists believe that we may one day be able to see as far back as 20 billion years into humanity’s past due to our advanced technology – think about that for a minute!
  7. Speaking of physics, there are many different types of technology used by physicists. One of the most important is that of particle accelerators and colliders – we use them to conduct experiments in particle physics and nuclear physics.
  8. Over 1,000 pounds (453 kilograms) of TNT were used to blast open the “Manhattan Project” site in Oak Ridge, Tennessee!
  9. Another example: when your GPS device calculates your location on Earth, it doesn’t always get it right at first – in fact, it may take up to 2 minutes for it to pinpoint your exact location on Earth!
  10. The first robots were tested at one of the world’s first nuclear power plants – the Belgian plant “Tihange 2” went online in 1977.
  11. In 1950, IBM was able to print 0.25 cent pieces..
  12. Of course, it would take 68 seconds to print all the money in circulation in the US!
  13. The National Security Agency has been developing quantum computers since 1994 (the IBQM Quantum Computer). These are machines that can solve certain problems nearly instantaneously – think about that for a minuteā€¦
  14. We can also gain new insights into our world by understanding the universe’s 13.8 billion-year history! Such as one day there may be a breakthrough in understanding how the solar system formed.

We love technology because it gives us options and freedom – but we also love it for its beauty, simplicity, and practicality. As humans, we want to understand the world around us and how things work in our daily lives – this is what drives us to invent new technologies that give greater insight into the world around us.

Conclusion 

But I hope you can see from the article above that technology is more than just random pieces of machinery that we use for entertainment and everyday life. Technology is a way for us to gain greater insight into our universe, our world, and ourselves – it’s a way for us to understand what makes us tick! This article will cover fourteen different facts about the great technology we use every day. Of course, many of these facts are well-known and are mentioned in every single history guide you read or show on TV. But there are a few scientific and technical achievements that are amazing for all the world to see!

Wow! I can't believe we finally got to meet in person. You probably remember me from class or an event, and that's why this profile is so interesting - it traces my journey from student-athlete at the University of California Davis into a successful entrepreneur with multiple ventures under her belt by age 25
