      Computers. If we could actually build an Intergalactic Nuclear Missile, it would be much too hard without a computer…

      I’d have to say steam engines – they were pretty important in the industrial revolution and that changed agriculture, manufacturing, mining, transportation, and technology.

      Well somewhere else we talked about the elevator (Mr Otis) in teh USA who began to make tall buildings feasible. The lifts in the Shard where I was yesterday – travel at 6metres per second. There are some in the world now that travel at 17m/s – so a bit faster…………….. See my new photos.
