People needed to get better ways to communicate and to travel
We were just discovering the secrets of coal and iron, and how to use it to our benefit.
Some countries have plenty of money to help with the revolution
There were more people which made for new jobs. Some peasants were getting kicked off land, so they went to the city to work.
"Innovation almost always is not successful the first time out. You try something and it doesn't work and it takes confidence to say we haven't failed yet. … Ultimately you become commercially successful." - Clayton Christensen, Harvard Business School professor
Machines were being used for the making of cloth.
Railroads powered by steam engines by steam engines helped power people to make new ways to get around
Canals were made for boats to get places easier. They were man made rivers. It helped move large quantities of items around
Steamboats were used to help go up river instead of going down. It could take passengers or cargo
When cars came around turn pikes or toll roads were invented, so people would have to pay to continue on the road.
People needed a way to connect better, and to have a better way to get a hold of someone or a group of people, without writing a 12 page letter every time.
We were evolving quickly and needed something that would evolve to keep up with us.
Some factors are that the technology was new, and people were figuring it out, and making it better and more advanced. It could change and keep up with our digital needs
These digital revolutions are so complex that the only way to explain them is if you were a person that built one of the many devices.
A smartphones purpose is to communicate to others and to be able for us to share things for other people to see.
Personal Computers let us create more complex documents and projects and still be able to share things with others.
Cameras and computers in cars help us to get to where we need to go, and to still be connected and able to talk to people while driving. A camera in a car to help back up, in the industrial revolution would be absurd.
Discovering ways to find more habitable planets and why they are not already habitats to living creatures. Don't know because we only explored certain planets. There could be more out there that we don't know about.
It will happen whenever they decide to explore up there and they will create a plan and build a machine to go up where we can't go for right now.
It has to be something NASA will be interested in doing and spending the time and money on it.
Some factors in this happening are when we are wanting to know and have the time and money to put into a big program and huge project that can take years.
Another factor is if people are willing to create more jobs and o help create the program to start off the process and get the program going so we can find out more about space
To go places that we have never gone before would require technology to help. A satellite or rocket ship to explore the area and tell us what we are looking at. What are we dealing with.
Some advancements that would come out in the future are new space shuttles that can withstand longer time periods in space, adjusting to different atmospheres. More communication with earth. Less blackouts.
No one knows how they would work, because they have not been built or invented yet. Maybe someone is working on plans right now.
The purpose is unknown because all of this will happen, but no one knows when or what we will do or what it will do for us.
