Is the Era of Groundbreaking Science Over?

dng88 It is too many groundbreaking that misled you IMHO (470 comments)

Around turn of the last but one century (1900), the end of physics was in sight. Done it you know. It took a nobody who is not even got a tutorship in U and has to do a patent to break everything in one year. He even got a Nobel Price in QM which he did not believe! Since then, no one dare to say anything. What can be said now is that change is so inherent and everyone is finding their breakthrough that it is not aware of so many discovery and changes around us. Just like water to fish. Just 30 years ago, do you think you can have 42" colour TV in your pocket, now our HD resolution IPAD same as that -- if you hold your IPAD and sit in your sofa and check. It is effectively the same size! ... That is enable by a lot of material science breakthrough, ... It is just so many (but little or stable) that you are drown with discovery everyday. Just now sure can a clerk somewhere can do what he did then. Have to give up a child and never found her again in his life.
