Which are the latest inventions by scientists?

Science discovers new things every day, so any answer to this question would be rendered obsolete within a few days. To keep up to date with scientific discoveries and inventions, it would be sensible to subscribe to a monthly or weekly journal, such as 'Nature' and 'Science', which will include all of that month's most interesting and important research. More focused journals also exist. For a more convenient approach, subscribe to magazines like 'New Scientist' or 'Scientific America', which take the most interesting and ground-breaking research and present it in a format that is relatively easy for anybody to understand and enjoy. Both of these have their own websites, which are free for anybody to access, where the vast majority of articles can be read without a subscription. If you want the detail of the journals, but the simplicity of the magazines, there are a variety of websites that will list all the recent (and historical) research articles at no charge. You will also be able to read the abstract for free, which provides a brief summary of the article. It would however cost money to read the full article. I do not recommend this method though, since you will not understand the abstracts nor be able to select interesting articles from the hundreds that are produced each month unless you are very scientifically minded, in which case you would benefit more from (and spend less money by) subscribing to the journals themselves.

What is the name of the scientist who invented the device to receive radio waves?

Guglielmo Marconi (Marchese Guglielmo Marconi), an Italian inventor, proved the feasibility of radio communication. He sent and received his first radio signal in Italy in 1895.

India's contributions to science, technology and crafts are well documented, if not widely known. For example, before the British arrived, Indians had a system of inoculation against smallpox; year-old live smallpox matter was used, and it was very effective. Inocultators would fan out into the country before the smallpox season in the winter. The British doctor J Z Holwell wrote a book in 1767 describing the system and how it was safe. European medicine did not have any treatment against this disease at that time.

How do scientists make an invention?

In most cases, scientists study specific areas of science. A scientist knows a lot about his/her specialty in science. This gives a scientist an insight to know what is lacking, what needs improving, or something needs to be developed (invented). When a scientist recognizes a need, they start thinking about it. They talk to other scientists about what they think or know and they research what others may have done or attempted to do for this need. They follow that with trial and error until they come up with something that works to fill the need. Occasionally, scientists invent something new by accident. That is how Alexander Fleming, the Scottish biologist, discovered that bread mold killed the bacteria that he was growing in a petri dish. He didn't apply the mold on purpose, it got into the petri dish accidentally from a piece of moldy bread. His discovery led to the invention of penicillin, which revolutionized medicine. Another important accidental discovery was the glue that makes Post-It notes work; they stick very well but can be removed without leaving residue. Spencer Silver, a scientist at the 3M research lab was working to improve the company's existing glue products. His formula was too weak for the 3M glue products and the company originally didn't have a use for such a weak glue. A coworker was annoyed by the paper book marks constantly sliding out and loosing his place when he remembered Silver's less than adequate glue. They tried it, they loved it and Post-Its became a necessity that the public was eager to buy.

Who was the first scientist and what he invent?

There have been scientists for thousands of years, although the word "scientist" is fairly recent (1834). But even back in ancient Greece, there were inventors who were doing scientific experiments to try to understand astronomy, medicine, mathematics, etc. One of the first scientists we know about from ancient Greece was Thales of Miletus, and several others were Aristotle, Euclid and Ptolemy. There were also scientists in Arabia-- some historians believe Ibn al-Haytham (who lived in what is today Iraq) was an important scientist: his expertise was in optics and theories about vision. Not all scientists were inventors back then-- most were experimenters, trying to figure out how the universe worked (including climate and weather; the stars and planets; the changing of the seasons, natural disasters, and so on); they were also interested in studying human anatomy to figure out what might cause diseases. One European scientist who invented something important was an Italian man named Galileo Galilei. In the early 1600s, Galileo built a thermometer, and he also perfected the telescope. Also important among inventors of that time was a British scientist named William Gilbert. In the 1600s, he studied physical science, and became an expert on magnets and magnetism. But if you are asking about inventions like the car or the radio, those didn't come along until much later, in the late 1800s.

Who is the well known scientist and what did he invent?

Isaac Newton -- invented calculus and a type of telescope that was more compact, but gave better magnification to see planets, stars, etc.

What are the names of the scientists who invented the computer?

The invention of a programmable mechanical digital computer (mid1830s) was by Charles Babbage , but he was never able to getsupport and funding to build it. The inventor of the electronic digital computer (1937) was Dr.John Vincent Atanasoff . He and a graduate student CliffordBerry completed it in 1942, just before the US entered WW2. Whenthey both left to perform war related work the University scrappedthe computer because it was too wide to fit through the doorway andthey needed to turn the room into a classroom. John Mauchly saw this machine in 1941 while it was being built andAtanasoff demonstrated the operation of the partially completecomputer to him at that time. Mauchley used ideas inspired by thiswhen he met J. Presper Eckert to design the ENIAC for the US ArmyBallistics Research Lab to assist in the computation of ArtilleryFiring Tables. Eckert and Mauchly patented ENIAC as its inventors, but the patentwas found invalid in the 1970s due to Mauchly's contact with the prior art of Atanasoff's prior but unpatented invention. The inventor of the first programmable electronic digital computer(1943) was Tommy Flowers . However the computer was keptclassified by the British and so was unknown for years. The inventor of the stored program digital computer was AlanTuring , but his initial invention was only a concept used inhis 1936 mathematical proof appearing in his paper "On ComputableNumbers" and he never tried to actually build it. Similar ideas forstored programming were duplicated independently while designingENIAC but not used on it at the time. John von Neumann mistakenlygot credit for these ideas when he wrote a paper about them and anearly draft without all the necessary credits was accidentallypublished and distributed.
