What are some key points historically in which we can say that science became reliant upon technology? We know that technology is a product of science, but at what point did science rely upon technology to make its investigations, and its claims to knowledge?
Technology usually relies on science more than the other way around. Only in the last 400 years did scientific advance depend upon technological advances like telescopes, microscopes, electricity, precision time and distance time measurements, lasers, spectroscopy, radioactivity measurement, particale accelerators etc.
