Since the year 1500 science has progressed at an accelerated pace. Almost every known type of problem has been experimentally attacked and methods have been developed for unravelling the riddle of particular phenomenon in question. The scope of scientific research extends from the investigation of the innermost secrets of the nucleus of the atom to the classification of facts known about ultrastellar space. This relentless discipline has probed into the secrets of living organisms and the gamut extends from explorations of submicroscopic, the nonfilterable virus, to the courtship and living habits of the stone-age man of New Guinea. However, homo sapiens has only recently come round to exposing himself to the searchlight of scientific investigation.
