Speaking in more general terms, I believe the whole idea of Science is that of understanding how nature and the laws of nature work through trial and error and constant judgement of new findings. As said in the lecture, and the thoughts of both Popper and Kuhn, for something to be a scientific fact it must be able to be refuted when it is found to be wrong, and not just be changed around to fit the results of its test. Not only should a theory be able to be refuted, but when it is found to be true, other scientists should be able to add on to the findings when necessary. This giving more emphasis on whatever being claimed. In the mind of Kuhn, science should not progress in a linear fashion for a certain amount of time, but it should undergo points of revolution. This is when the previous findings are fortified with knowledge and new findings to add emphasis to the central idea or theory. This philosophy of adding to preexisting research, in my own opinion, is the best way to go about finding and verifying new scientific theories because it gives scientists a better understanding of what they are dealing with from the work of the ones who came before them. The unfortunate truth about this, as said in the reading, is that there would then be a battle for credit on who found what first. I personally do not really see an issue with the credit going where it needs to go based on certain findings, even if it comes from a proven fact of theory that was already proven to be true. This is because science should be accessible to all people around the world, because what is proven can effect everyone.

Technology is stemmed from the ideas of science and are the tools resulting from new discoveries. Even something as rudimentary stick and a string used for a fishing pole is considered technology because it makes life easier for whoever is using it. Technology impacts society by making it more efficient, from transportation to medicine, new science leads to new technology which then transfers to new ways for society to thrive.
