Science is an important part of our everyday life, even more so than we notice. From our fancy gadgets to the the technologies we can’t live without, from our humble light bulb to the space explorations, it is all gift of science and technology. There have been many great inventors in civilization’s young career. People are always trying to advance technology and methodology in new ways.
Thomas Edison, the renowned American inventor and businessman, has held the record for the most patents in U.S. history for more than 80 years. Some inventions of Edison are a completely original version of some of the more developed one. The most important invention of electric bulb received a patent in 1879. Thomas Alva Edison’s 1080 patents have been internationally recognized in the register.
