What is Science and How Does It Help Us?
In the simplest sense, science is the study of the physical world around us. This is composed of things we already know for certain and has been tested and things we have yet to explore. In most cases science begins with our curiosity of some observance we have made. Those observations are then run through scientific process to test a hypothesis. If that hypothesis holds true consistently, it helps us build our natural knowledge base. Cumulatively this knowledge can be condensed and used to create new technologies or tools that make human life easier within some aspect. Science itself can be grouped into four separate disciplines. The natural sciences help us understand life and the things that nature interact with. Formal science focuses on mathematics and logic. Social sciences study people and groups of people. This can all be used by the applied branch of science that has us apply all the different disciplines to use this knowledge to develop new applications to make human life easier.
