The first amendment made it possible for advances in technology. The freedoms given by the first amendment allow for the faster travel and communication.

The technology field is constantly growing and changing. The ways that it has changed lives in new ways. The ability to reach new frontiers and get there faster is what drives the technology further.

No. Our species does not possess the technology for faster than light speed.

Bullets flies at the top speed of Mach 3 but almost Mach 4. There are some planes that can fly much faster than bullets but bullets used to fly faster than most planes(aircraft). Hypersonic aircraft can fly up to Mach 9. So yes, hypersonic aircraft can fly much faster than bullets. If these hypersonic planes can fly faster than bullets, they can fly alot faster than missiles. Missiles also flies around Mach 3 but hypersonic planes don't fly at that kind of speed. The top speed that hypersonic planes is nearly Mach 10(almost 10 times faster than the speed of sound).

Technology makes it possible to plan in a much faster and simple way. It also makes planning much more effective as it takes into consideration a lot of aspects.

Technology-slowly, the world got faster

Almost all of them. The question is, what bullets travel SLOWER than the speed of sound? They're called "subsonic" bullets, and special operations units buy them for their silenced guns.

Yes, machine guns are much faster than Gatling guns. Gatling guns must be hand cranked and fed bullets at the same but machine guns does not have to be hand cranked. All they needs are bullets. Machine guns also fire more bullets faster than Gatling guns.

Technology allows you to work faster than you normally would. With technology, you can do multiple things at once to finish your work faster.

Both are similar to one another technology wise and finding out which is faster is not possible. Ideally speaking a JSP once compiled and deployed in a web server behaves like a servlet.

The further a galaxy is away from us the faster it's moving away from us.

Two pros of technology are: increased productivity and faster communication.

Not really. It's not utterly impossible, but it would require a major change in our current understanding of how the universe works.

Most modern guns DO fire bullets that break the sound barrier. That is, their bullets travel faster than the speed of sound when they are fired.

I'll pick Flash.Both are basically the same. Accept its proven that Flash is faster. Flash is as fast as the speed light. Where as Quicksilver is as fast as the speed of sound. Guns can fire bullets at the speed of sound. Flash dodges bullets all the time. If you faster than bullets your faster than Quick silver. FLASH WINS!Besides flash is just cooler.

The smaller the grain weight, the faster you can make the round go. 90 Grain bullets can reach 1,350-1,400 feet per second maximum, 147 grain bullets can only go 950- 1,000 Feet per second maximum. Assuming you're talking about bullet weight and not powder weight.

Business technology optimization is solely centered on making a business as productive as possible while keeping costs down. Examples are faster software and hardware as well as lower cost solutions for telecommunications.

yes they are. machine guns are fed bullets. Gatling guns are hand cranked and have to be fed bullets at the same time. machine guns also spray bullets faster than Gatling guns.

Given similar technology the supercomputer is faster, by definition.

All bullets drop at the same speed.

No. Bullets travel from a few hundred feet per second up to several thousand feet per second, and lightening is much faster than that. According to various sources, lightening travels at either the speed of light, or about half of that, or about a third of that.

pci is faster. but there is a newer technology called pcie which is much faster than pci

Yes, bullets travel faster than the speed of sound. That is why if someone was to shoot a target from a distance and you were standing beside the target, you would be able to see the target get hit by the bullet before you would hear the crack of the gun Some bullets travel faster than the speed of sound, but not all.
