This is the age of science and technology. Every growing minute is a step up to the revolution of technology. Men has invented millions of thing which are helpful for him in many fields of life. These inventions help a lot in different ways. We may see this revolution from the world of medical to the world of even toys. Nearly men has invented every thing of his need and even wishes are also become true. Advantages and disadvantages are two parallel things for every thing. Every thing which has advantages must also has some disadvantages. Not all the inventions are very useful for men. There are many such inventions which are very harmful and dangerous for human. Here we have some of those inventions which are really very dangerous. Their negative use may harm human being even they can be the causes of death of innocent people. The article ”Top 10 Most Dangerous Scientific Inventions of All Time” will explore most harmful and dangerous inventions of science.
Top 10 Most Dangerous Scientific Inventions of All Time
01. ATOMIC BOMB
The biggest danger ever for the whole world and human beings. Everyone knows its harmful effects. It was invented during World War 2 in a very famous project led by scientist Robert Oppenheimer. This harmful bomb was first tested on July 16,1945 in Los Alamos (new Mexico). It was a very bright blast. With this experiment the biggest danger of the word was made by man himself. The destruction of the cities on which this was used in the past, was very terrifying and horrible. Today some of the countries have this harmful bomb. Though UN has banned its use but it is said that everything is fair in love and war. So its use can be very dangerous for human being.
02. AGENT ORANGE
This was also an invention which was invented for a very useful purpose, but its negative use has dropped it in the list of most dangerous inventions. It was intended by its inventor Arthur Galston to be a chemical growth hormone fertilizer that would increase the growth rate of soybeans when sprayed on them from the air. Later Galston discovered it could become a herbicide. Later the army took this invention and used it during the Vietnam War to kill and injure 400,000 people. It was really very harmful for people even it affected the babies before birth.
The Guillotine was invented in 1791 by a group led by Joseph-Ignace Guillotin who was a Parisian anatomy professor. This execution device used a lunette to immobilize a victim’s neck and a crescent and sharp blade to chop off the head. Its violated use has been very harmful and dangerous during the past. Its this use made it to fall in the list of most dangerous inventions’ list.
04. AUTOMATIC RIFLE
This is the most common used harmful and dangerous weapon across the world. This was invented by a Mecixan General ”Manuel Mondragon” in 1887. Some of its descendants are the AK-47, the M16A1, and the M-14. These rifles are more dangerous than others because they are self-loading and capable of delivering fully-automatic weapon fire. Unfortunately this weapon is very common and easy to use. Its brutal use has shown its dangerous nature to the world.
Trinitrotoluene which is also known as TNT, is also an explosive chemical compound that was first synthesized in 1863 by German famous physicist Joseph Wilbrand. Though his intention was to use the compound as a yellow dye but it is a very harmful invention which can take many lives in a matter of seconds. In modern age terrorism has become a biggest threat for the world. These terrorists uses same harmful materials to kill the innocent people. TNT is listed as the most dangerous invention ever, because its negative use is very harmful for human beings even for living things.
Famous scientist Thomas Midgley discovered the CFC Freon while working for General Motors in 1930. It was also an inventions which was invented to just help human beings and for useful purposes. Its inventor intended it to be a safe non-toxic refrigerant to be used in household appliances. CFCs replaced toxic or explosive substances previously used as refrigerants in heat pumps and refrigerators. Later he discovered that it is really harmful and destructive for Ozone layer. Though it is used for many useful purposes in different appliances. But on the other hand it is really dangerous for Ozone layer which is becoming weaker and weaker due to this invention.
07. LAND MINES
This is also a very dangerous invention ever in history. It is an explosive material which are triggered by contact, and can damage both soldiers and civilians. Due to this reason they are now called indiscriminate weapons. Because normal eye can not see and detect that where it is burred. Its victim may lose his life or can suffer a serious injury which can result a permanent disability. Though it was first use for constructive purposes but most of time it is used for destructive purposes.
08. SARIN GAS
This is an unintentionally invented gas which was discovered by German chemist Dr. Gerhard Scharder in 1938. He was working for some other invention then he accidentally discovered the gas Sarin. This si a toxic substance which is now listed as a weapon of mass destruction by UN. It is very dangerous and harmful, when it used as weapon it attacks the nervous system and may cause even death. But its victim suffers a lot before death.
It is also a very harmful chemical. Its full name is dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane. It was first synthesized in 1874. But its properties as a pesticide were not discovered until 1939. During this time it was used all over the world to control and wipe out insect populations. It has some serious environmental effects which are really very harmful for human beings and other living things.
10. DIRTY BOMB
This is another very dangerous invention. It combines radioactive material with explosives. Because they do not cause immediate death so, dirty bombs are not classified as Weapons of Mass Destruction. But its effects which remain in environment, is really very destructive indeed. It is a cause of many serious diseases which can be long term diseases.
Possessors of these dangerous inventions should not use them, because they are very dangerous and may take many innocent lives.
