Da Vinci, throughout his life, made incredible headway in the area of science. He sketched out many amazing designs for working machines and technology. What is so astounding though is the time in which these designs were created. Da Vinci's life spanned the mid-15th century and into the early 16th century. It would be some 300-400 years later before Da Vinci's ideas would be improved upon or even fathomed. It is a true wonder that a man born of poverty could, 4 centuries earlier, conceive ideas that were to be a basis for our modern world today.
