Science's Debt to Print


Do you know...the growth of science owes a lot to the invention of the printing press?

As more secular books were printed and the general population gained access to books, scientific knowledge spread and scientists were able to share their work and learn what others had discovered too. 

Einstein believed the printing press was a significant factor in the rise of modern scientific thought.

It revolutionised education and research as knowledge became accessible to students without the need for a teacher. He wrote that future publications would provide students with knowledge that would go on to surpass even ancient wisdom and understanding.
