Today natural sciences continue to keep one of the leading places in the system of scientific knowledge. It is difficult to overestimate the role played by natural science in the development of modern society. Natural science currently remains the basis for the development of productive forces. Applied research in chemistry, physics, biology, astronomy, geology and other natural sciences lay the foundation for the design of technical systems aimed to facilitate the development of nature. Almost all current technology uses the phenomena and effects discovered in natural sciences.
