Science today is very different from what it was 50 years ago. Back then, we were only setting foot on the moon for the first time. Now, NASA has been starting to make plans to send humans to Mars in the next couple of decades. We have made significant progress in STEM over the last few decades. In the last 20 years itself, we’ve started programming stem cells, sent the first robot to Mars, completed sequencing of the Human Genome project, and much much more! Our past discoveries have made us more knowledgeable, and we continue to use this knowledge to further progress in STEM. The recent finding of water on Mars, for example, has given scientists new hope of finding life and new motivation to send humans to the red planet. Scientists are also making predictions about how STEM will progress in the next few decades. For example, scientists anticipate that by 2035, doctors will be able to restore memories wiped out by disease or trauma and even find a cure to AIDS. Therefore, STEM has been making very fast progression in our society and it is expected to advance even faster in the future.
