Science. Still working.

November 27, 2007

When my parents were born, antibiotics were yet to be mass produced. When I was born, the CT scanner was yet to be used on a human. In 1977 we saw the first full body MRI scan. My wife had her Stealth scan in the early 2000s before our youngest daughter was born.

What’s next to be developed I wonder?

Today the Herald carries this story (from the UK Independent) about Philips and a new generation of CT scanner. The pictures are amazing and I was stunned to see the suggestion that EMI managed to invest in the first CT scanner simply because the company made so much money from The Beatles. Who knew!

Science. It [still] works.
