About the 20th century:
The 20th century saw a major shift in the way that many people lived, with major changes in politics, ideology, economics, society, culture, science, technology, and medicine. The 20th century may have seen more technological and scientific progress than all the other centuries combined since the dawn of civilization. Scientific discoveries, such as the theory of relativity and quantum physics, profoundly changed the foundational models of physical science, forcing scientists to realize that the universe was more complex than previously believed and humans explored space for the first time, taking their first footsteps on the Moon. Mass media, telecommunications, and information technology, especially public education and the Internet, made the world’s knowledge more widely available. Advancements in medical technology also improved the health of many people: the global life expectancy increased from 35 years to 65 years.
