The science of chemistry, stands at the forefront, of the change, that we as humans, are anticipating, in the new millennium.

Some of the changes, we are expecting from chemistry, are things such as: fuel cells, which can power society and sustain the environment.

Other changes are, the creation of a new and more durable, battery; also, the design of medicine, which is mainly based on our understanding, of the genetic make-up, of humans; in order to prevent the epidemic, of new and old illness.

When we research the origins of life, as well, and when we explore the solar system, and nearby systems, to look for signs of life, elsewhere, the changes and our new understanding of chemistry, can help us solve, year old mysteries, which we couldn’t solve before.

Chemistry has a tremendous impact, in our daily lives, and the extent, of that impact is, we must say that it is indeed mind-boggling.

Chemistry is all around us, from the time we wake up, to the time to fall asleep, all through the night and when we wake back up again.

Chemistry, is actually working inside of your body right now, for you to be able to read this article.

If you didn’t know it, you are a walking bag of water, with many molecules working together, to form who you are today.

Your heart, is pumping blood, all through your body, to make that exchange, of oxygen and carbon dioxide (CO2) is a perfect example of perfect chemistry, at work.

If you ever needed transportation, chemistry is at work to make that happen for us, without the knowledge of chemistry, we wouldn’t be able to accomplish many of the things, we have accomplished today.

We just simply wouldn’t, because we wouldn’t know, how hot, could a car engine, become, before it overheats.

Chemistry, allows us, to understand the process of heating a car, but not to the point of overheating the vehicle.

Of course, there are other areas, of knowledge, which are at play here, however chemistry is our current, topic, and we must stay on topic.

The natural environment, which we call our home, is also found to be full of chemical elements, which are found on the periodic table.

The way that chemistry, works in our environment, to give us the ability, to interact, with our world, is remarkable.

A remarkable complex system, of chemical interactions, is formed, but the air, water, land and the many organisms, which tend, to thrive, in a well taken care of environment.

This of course, is another, topic, which we could also discuss, if you understood, what I meant, by a well taken care of environment.

This means an unpolluted, environment.

I don’t want to go further, into that topic, because you all know, how bad we treat our environment.

Anyhow, back to the fact of the matter; the science of chemistry, deals directly, with the make-up of the entire physical universe.

Chemistry, is the study of matter, and its properties, as well as the changes, which matter goes through, and the energy, which is emitted by those changes.

In order to well understand chemistry, you’ll have to know, where to begin, and a good place to begin, is with the definition of a few central ideas and terms.

We will not get into this rest of the topic, at this time, because we have reached the end of our conversation, and I would like, to keep you coming back.

Thank you, for reading this article!!!
