What made our modern world? Laws, politicians, kings and queens? Or the diesel, the computer, penicillin and the gun? The Science Museum has an amazing collection of 'firsts' representing the most important steps in science and invention. From Stephenson's locomotive Rocket to Crick and Watson's DNA model or the Apollo 10 moon craft, these are some of the Museum's most prized treasures.
