My candidate crosses a lot of boundaries: materials science. In almost every aspect of our lives -- the paint and adhesives we use, the clothing we wear, our vessels and houses and automobiles, our medications and the way they are administered, prosthetics, implants, furniture, our devices -- materials scientists have been busy making things lighter, stronger, more durable, even possible. Nobody seems to notice the humble stuff that his world is made of, but I am old and I remember how amazed we were at the first man-made fiber (rayon), and when aluminum first became familiar(such an amazingly light metal!) and the rapid spread of lightweight colorful plastics (Bakelite was before my time).
