Nowadays I am reading the Book called “The Theory of Everything” by Stephen W.Hawking. It contains Stephen’s 6 lectures about Universe, Black holes, Origin of Universe, Time and finally the Theory of Everything. I am enjoying well …
In that book, in one place Stephen has pointed out (Here I am giving a summary in my words) until 1939 lot of the scientists was researching about Macro world things example: about Gravitational forces. But then due to the 2nd world war most of them were involved in Atomic bomb project and then after the war they have concentrated more on the micro world (I mean in the Atomic level)
Therefore if the 2nd world war is not happened, the scientists continued their researches on Macro world, about the Universe, Time, Relativity… They not much worried about the atomic world.
I think, because they have researched on the atomic world they were able to invent transistors. Without transistors we can’t talk about the computer age. So I think the 2nd world war made a change on our life and it led for the Computer Age
Now, can you all imagine a world without 2nd world war?
