New technologies & tools for universe survey

As more and more technologies or tools have been invented to survey the universe, new knowledge has surfaced.'It is fairly clear that some old books that claim to know all already are not to be read so literally. But, as British scientist and historian of science 'Dr. Joseph Needham (1900-1995) and his team of intellectual collaborators discovered and recorded in Science & Civilisation in China, there were conscious and systematic efforts to articulate sciences (including mathematics) and apply technologies in China''s ancient societies and the product of the intellectual 'labor are still preserved in many classic books in Chinese.
