Researchers say that not one part of industry today can be examined without coming across some reference to the steam engine. These efforts resulted in technological breakthrough in design of steam engines that revolutionized sea transport, and were exclusively responsible for very invention of railways and motorized surface transport.
The steam engine opened a whole new world to everyone. The steam engine invented by James Watt was successfully deployed by English businessman Matthew Boulton across almost every sphere of industrial operation by with resounding success and ushered in the industrial revolution to permanently change the dynamics of human society.
