What was the most innovative decade of the past 120 years? This means what decade created the most advancements in technology, science and innovation???
1880s, 1890's were huge decades for electric, telephone and physics.
1900-1910's were HUGE for the car, airplane. Oil, coal, Steal, etc. Basic understanding of genetics, etc.
1920's kicked ass for cures for disease. Lived before the 1920's and after made a big difference. Many of the diseases of old were nearly wiped out.
1940's-1960's were decades of huge advancement in the jet engine.
1960's-1970's were the decade of rockets and space travel! Computers were also advancing with new and improve technology. ;)Amazing medical advances. Like pace makers, etc. Microwaves...
1980's personal computers, vcr's, cell phones..Heart transplants, etc.
1990's internet, PDA's
2000's flat t.v's, amazing advancement in computers; tablets, smart phones, wireless tech, renewable energy! 3-d printing for your home...
This is a hard choice for me. We owe a lot to the 1900's for cars, planes and oil, but the same can be said for the 1920's for the vaccines!
