Man's Greatest AchievementsemraldYE The greatest things the human race has ever done or made.
The Top Ten
This is a feat that will always stand up in history as the most important step in mankind in terms of science and space. If it weren't for the moon landing, we wouldn't be doing research on Mars or be trying to reach other planets now, and this landing has lead to so many new scientific discoveries and possibilities! - Mousike
This was by far and away the most extraordinary achievement of all time. This was pre main stream run of the mill technology. This was ground breaking ingenuity of the greatest kind back then, highlighting the real strive to achieve something of a higher plane that man had not sought achieve before. A great achievement never to be surpassed!
Apollo 11 was the greatest achievements by the human race, it showed us what we could really do when we as a nation and as a species tried.
Absolutely. An astonishing feat of imagination, intelligence and courage that defines the human race.V 32 Comments
Electronic devices now make up a huge part of the lives for the majority of the world. First radios, telephones, following that, we got televisions and mobile phones and now we're at computers, smartphones and the internet. Electricity also provides us lots of interesting technology such as space travel/exploration, special medication methods. Electricity made communication miles easier and opened up countless branches of entertainment.
Without electrnic devices, we would never have made it to the moon.
Yeah, I agree to that. This is the perfect reason that why this item shouldn't be ahead of "travelled to the moon" - Neeoo
How do you think we got to the moon
I really have so much respect for that. Imagine life without cars, airplanes, computers etc...?
We would still be animals NOT humans
Helped us cook food, making it easier for us to get more glucose to the brain - thereby enlarging our brains by about 2 times of the next million years - and this is when human being unleashed the creative energy from their brains to discover, invent (and sometimes destroy) all the things attributed to humans.
This has to be number 2, it was the thing that started the new era for humans.
It's the pillar of creation, same for stone tools.

Great technological invention, and even by 2015, perhaps the grestest, but not the greatest of all human inventions - ability to enlarge our brains, describe and peer into atomic level structures helped us discover and invent all that we see - medicine, materials, electronics, etc. Etc.
Flight for humans is impossible. But we flew anyway. - emraldYE
Creating something so big such as the Hindenburg using hydrogen as a flight source is really hard
Writing is the sole reason that mankind has been able to accumulate knowledge. The limits of oral language becomes quite evident when death comes for all of us. There is also a limit to the quantity of knowledge we can hold, compute, and comprehend within our heads. Abstract thinking is much less efficient when it comes to creating formulas and logical statements. Writing has also allowed us to generalize variations within many fields, especially mathematics and sequences, consequently leading to the discovery/creation of calculus. In short, all of the other achievements listed here would have been impossible or significantly more difficult without the creation of writing.
Personally I think saying that saying going to the moon was our biggest achievement is a very closed minded thought. Think of it in the big picture, writing is a way to get thoughts on paper, stories, recipes, instructions, letters, nothing would exist in our modern work without the art of writing - Waser12345
Who knew a few lines in an odd design could have the power to change our world...

How can someone not agree with this, all the objects in the universe can be explained using these theories. Moreover, the future would be based on it, remember teleportation and Quantum Computing? All the above are daily objects which make man's life simple, but did you figuire out how to explain them in the scale of subatomic particles, these theories help you, though there might be loop joles which would be solved in the future.
Explains almost all the we see - from galaxies and stars to protons and electrons.
Ditto _ man's greatest achievement

This one does not deserve to be among all the greatest accomplishments. We were created by God!
Compared to so many other things this is huge! An explanation of how we came into being, if you combine it with natural selection it also becomes possible to manipulate evolution
This one needs to not be on this list. What has it done, other than lead many away from the saving grace of Our Lord?
Its just a theory. Nothing exists unti a human mind defines and declares it into exist.V 2 Comments
It's amazing that we created a rhythm out of mere noises that we dance to. - emraldYE
Dude without music I would have gone crazy and our whole society would be changed.
Music is one of the most unexplainable thing ; a sequence of sounds that brings you joy.
"music brings people together that normally would kill each other"V 3 Comments
Definitely number one. Without the Internet we wouldn't be able to communicate with the other side of the world cheaply, quickly and decisively.
I want who is the founder of Internet
Probably a brit they invented everything

The ability to save not only humans, but other life forms, from microscopic "devils" is absolutely amazing. - emraldYE
I wonder whether most of us living today would have been living today if not for vaccines.
Vaccines are the man-made mechanism to make humans into super humans
Man stumbled upon atomic power and fashioned it into nuclear weapons which possess the capacity to destroy every living thing in their path. Nothing man has done is more significant to the future of this world and its inhabitants.
Nuclear weapons are risky but on the other hand these weapons are the main reason we have peace now because of the fear of these weapons
A new world war would be way too risky; with such massive weapons, the world would blow each other up. - emraldYE
Language is very important because it's how we communicate. It blows my mind how we came up with an entire language from nothing and that we have so many.
Language is the single most important technological leap for mankind. It dwarfs all others in comparison. And how mysterious and powerful it is to be able to take an abstract concept and implant that in the mind of another. It's an incredible feat when you think about it. It borders on being a metaphysical force.
Language an entire list of words,sentences,phrases and whole lot of grammar made up of strange sounds from our mouth have the power to express ourselves and others. Without language we would have been prisoners in our minds. Without Language creative writing wouldn't be possible nor would be Internet. What would our thoughts be like if we did not know any language? We even think in a certain language (that's what I think).
None of these accomplishments would have happened without communicationV 6 Comments
The greatest achievement by climbing the biggest mountain in the world
I think this this is important
Wheel improved the transport of things, so improved the commerce and the progress of the humanity.
A wheel is in a lot of things
Wheel is one of the greatest achievement of mankind...V 2 Comments

This must be the biggest achievement of the twentieth century.To completely eradicate a disease which killed so many people,it's got to be a greater achievement than landing on the moon.
Going to the moon was just 1 nation flexing its muscles to show off to another nation. To tackle smallpox all people around the world had to cooperate to banish a small piece of evil from the land.
Eridacating smallpox was all of man working together to be the best that we could
Got to know about atoms and how to manipulate them before you can reach the moon.
Yeah the first priority id to know 'bout the matter around u. - Neeoo

Man has achieved far more mind boggling tasks then creating the television...yes it's used everyday for very necessary things such as information (news) and leisure but millions of years and the countless amount of people who have walked the earth and the ideas that have been thought/brought to life television doesn't ranked among the top 20. What about the creation of the 12 month calander? It's amazing how man with technology nothing like we see today was able to develop a time clock and determine how many days it took days it takes for the earth to rotate the sun is just amazing.
If I went back in time knowing what I know now I think I could come up with the lightbulb, radio, and even powered flight but television? Truly the most complex and important human achievement next to going to the moon.
Philo Farnsworth is my hero!
Humanity began a new era.
Then it died soon after
I want to know how they do that though
This has changed the history of the whole world. Without the Printing Press, the Bible, and several other books and works would never be in the hands of simple civilians.
Non of the things rated higher than this could have been done without this
After all we have a place to talk.discus and mitigate our differences.
We created something that enables us to grasp truth. This allows us to explore the universe without using our senses. Mathematics was one of the first creations of humans that exists beyond a physical world.
While it may not be the moon landing, it was still an amazing journey to reach the South Pole.
To have an object made on this earth but have it roaming our neighbours Galaxy is quite remarkable. I'm not certain exactly what information is being gathered but any is good I imagine.
If someone had a good enough receiver then we could have already contacted aliens
Math... without it we could not reach the moon, we could not even begin to imagine quantum computing, and we could not ever have mastered flight. I mean if you're going do a loop in a plane then you need to calculate the gravitational pull and factor the weight.
Without it, many things today wouldn't exist
A true miracle and also probably one of the gratest achivments in avation and man kind

To not only find the smallest unit of matter but then split it is truly a testament to human ingenuity and willpower.
Us humans managed to create cometic drugs that have allowed us to live on from illnesses that would have killed people thousands of years ago
Watson and crick's work revolutionized human biology. The genome project existed because of these guys
This will eventually help us find a replacement for earth and eventually save the human race in general
We've reached every corner of our world
