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.
July 20th, 1969 will forever go down as one of the greatest accompishments in mankind history.V 30 Comments
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
Great thing, and also wifi
Better than travelling to the moonV 7 Comments
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.

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings... - beatles
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...
We are able to code; it's the base for everything else.
To capture the world and keep a scene forever is unearthly. - emraldYE
Photography developed into bird watching, pornography, records of human history, videos, movies, illustrated books, printing and presentation(e.g graphs)
I don't know
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 is biggest achievement by humans...This should be at number 1 Position
Its just a theory. Nothing exists unti a human mind defines and declares it into exist.V 1 Comment
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
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
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
Power to give unlimited informationV 5 Comments
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.
We're the only animal which can name everything it sees and knows about. Evolutionary progress isn't that much of an achievement, though.
I don't entirely disagree with the last statement, "How is language not number 1? ", the highest achievement of humankind. However,I believe that the Voice is the crowning achievement of evolution/ of humankind. No voice, no language. I think of the frustration, anxiety, and depression that stroke victims experience when unable to speak or barely speak.
How is this not number 1?V 2 Comments
The greatest achievement by climbing the biggest mountain in the world
Was he lost? Where was he hiding?
That's not true usane bolt is the fastest that's what everyone els says
VJ Tauli is the fastest person 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

The manipulation of genes is the future of medicine.
Big old black one
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!
